The Iris Hotel in Chennai was the venue for “Professional updates” themed AUTCON 2022, NICE Conference on Autism. Starting in-person sessions after the break for pandemic, we treaded a cautious path with targeting only 100 in-person attendees and another 100 on-line. The event was planned to be hybrid with even some speakers joining online.

Inaugurated By Dr.Ezhilarasi President IAPCCB and Dr.Amithab Dwivedi, Prof in OT NIEPMD, EX DEAN OG JOTC, EC MEMBER OF AIOT , the scientific session started with the basics of clinical practice – EVIDENCE. This is NICE’s 6th Annual Autism Conference, and we have been able to Inspire and Engage with our audiences every time. Looking back, what started as a MCHAT workshop, has now evolved to having discussions on behaviors and workshop on entrepreneurship. We are proud of this.

This year we attempted a hybrid mode with a conference platform Virtrio. Packed with interesting features like Resource rooms, Video chats and the promise of many interactive features, the conference was planned to succeed. But for the technical glitch at the first part of the technical program, the results of the conference were heart-warming. This experience has only motivated us to better ourselves.

Co-hosted by IAPGDBP and Ramana Rehab centre, the conference had attendees from outside Chennai as well.

The conference covered the multiple issues around Autism. Each was aimed at benefitting  clinicians in their practice. Ms.Ida Mary, touched upon the need for evidence and the means to it. She also briefed about how to employ it in practice. Dr.Subramanian threw light on the influence of the gut microbiota on Autism. Dr. Krupa, talked about getting parents involved in communicating about daily routines. Dr.Puneeth Kalra discoursed around the misconceptions about Vaccines and Autism, while Ms.Vipula Rajesh elucidated the transitional journey from online to offline learning in Autism. An engaging panel discussion about behaviors in Autism by Dr. Suneel Godbole, Dr.Sivaprakasam and Ms.Ida Mary was moderated by Ms.Kanagalakshmi. The post lunch session laid the platform for the shortlisted scientific paper presentations and was followed by an engaging workshop on Entrepreneurship by Mr.Pankaj and Ms.Sai Harika Bopanna.
