Teresa (Terry) Bennett, MD, FRCPC, PhD

Assistant Professor, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist
Offord Centre for Child Studies
Co-Director, McMaster Autism Research Team

 Learning from Children and Families Affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder

Dr. Bennett’s clinical and research interests focus on developmental psychiatry: understanding risk and protective factors for optimal child mental health and development, and how prevention and “timely intervention” programs can help children, youth and families on their life pathways.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) – what causes it, how we treat it and why it seems to be on the rise – is a popular, and often controversial, health and science topic in the media. Dr. Bennett will share some updates on the understanding of ASD, from a gene-to-brain-to-family-to-neighbourhood approach. She will also share some of the lessons she has learned from the children and families with whom she works, and how this has informed her views and experience of diversity, acceptance and wonder as a physician, parent and citizen.
