Welcome to the Winter Edition of Another Piece!
We have farewelled a key staff member at OTARC, our Senior Advisor of Operations and Projects, Mr Wojciech Nadachowski. Wojciech left in late March to begin working at the Autism CRC as Chief Operations Officer. I would like to acknowledge the energy and expertise Woj brought to his role at OTARC, and all he has generously done for us over the last four years. His contributions will continue to keep us in good stead!

The 15th annual International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) was recently held in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. As a young researcher and first-time attendee, the three-day conference offered a valuable opportunity to get up-to-date with the exciting new findings in autism research, and interact with autism researchers from a range of disciplines and across the globe. Keynote speakers and panel sessions showcased findings from a wide range of topic areas, including epidemiology, service delivery, behavioural and intellectual assessment, and interventions across the lifespan, while an impressive line-up of poster sessions spanned 20 topic areas.
