MEDRIX is very excited to announce that our sponsored workshop “Assessment Strategies and Early Intervention for Children with ASD” has just wrapped up with great success! Dr. Thanh Ngoc Minh at National Children’s Hospital in Hanoi supervised 2 pilot workshops immediately after the MEDRIX team finished our site visit and medical education projects in April 2017. Dr. Minh’s workshop implemented MEDRIX material right away, ensuring that the momentum built up for autism education was not lost.
20 participants total were trained and will return to their local communities to immediately begin working with their littlest patients who are exhibiting signs of autism. Participants ranged from doctors, Bachelor’s-level nurses, preschool teachers and even a MEDRIX staff member! Our project manager Ms. Ha has worked closely with Dr. Minh to develop the workshop and help with translation, and completed it alongside her colleagues. The course curricula was intensive and detailed how to use multiple diagnostic tools, intervention techniques, how to counsel parents and clinical experience.
Comments from the course participants are listed below:
