To celebrate Autism Awareness Month, the US Consulate in Cape Town and CARA partnered together to host a special film screening and discussion about Oscar nominated documentary, Life, Animated. The film is an inspiring story about a young man with autism and his lifelong love of Disney movies which allows him to process the world and in turn learn to communicate. It depicts his and his family's journey from early childhood to adulthood.
The CARA team in conjunction with the UCT based Adolescent Health Research Unit and the Neurodevelopmental Foundation are excited about the recent launch of a new youtube channel, called Theneurodevelopmentalchannel.
We are excited to announce the appointment of Dr Liezl Schlebusch as a lecturer in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
CARA team members are soon presenting their research findings at two prestigious international conferences: International Society for Autism Research (INSAR) in Rotterdam and the International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (IACAPAP) in Prague.
