Autism Spectrum: Accessing Quality Care and Services
 Autism research has led to earlier identification and interventions. But, often families have challenges accessing quality services. How do we support families in obtaining services for their children? Learn how our study team partners directly with community members – from primary care providers to educators and family members. This ensures recommended treatments are used as widely as possible, are effective in the real-world setting, and families have access to care.  
 A Conversation with
Aubyn is a Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the UC Davis MIND Institute.  Her research involves using community-partnered research models to translate high quality care to schools and early intervention settings for children with autism and their families. This includes increasing access those in rural and underserved areas.
Elizabeth is a doctoral student in Human Development at UC Davis. She serves as a program coordinator for the UC Davis Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities at the MIND Institute.  She is a parent of a child with Autism and is an active board member for Warmline Family Resource Center in Sacramento, CA. 

Community Conversations Science Café is a bi-monthly speaker’s series produced by the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center, UC Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities, and the Powerhouse Science Center.

Science Café Background Information
The CTSC Community Engagement Program began the Science Café speaker series in August 2016.  The purpose of the events is to provide a casual, safe space for lay audiences to have conversations with scientists, and is aimed at engaging the general public in a discussion about research, current events, and other aspects of science that have current public interest (e.g., the opioid addiction crisis and how to manage it, the spread and dangers of the Zika virus, etc.).

These community-research education conversations are hosted bimonthly as an opportunity for researchers to 

Present cutting-edge research findings

Engage with and learn from the end-users of scientific health discoveries (the public)

Enhance the public trust in science

Improve scientific literacy

Spark interest in collaboration with health researchers
