Riding the TIDE to improve outcomes for children with neurodevelopmental disorders

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by Burnaby Public Library's Bob Prittie Metrotown Library as part of the UBC Library's Health Information Series. Intellectual disabilities are no longer necessarily an unchangeable fate. Today, new tools allow us to diagnose and treat specific genetic conditions that cause developmental delay and intellectual disability, previously thought to be permanent. Individuals with intellectual disabilities often develop epilepsy and autism—much of which can now be prevented through life-changing treatments.
