OTARC staff, Professor Dissanayake and Dr Barbaro, have been working with Dr Joanna Kwasiborska-Dudek in Warsaw, Poland, to implement the Social Attention and Communication Surveillance (SACS) to facilitate early identification in Poland. Dr Kwasiborska-Dudek recently gave a lecture about this project at a conference organized by the Synapsis Foundation, a high-profile group of Polish psychiatrists and psychotherapists. Her talk was well received and generated a lot of interest in others wanting to be trained in SACS. They are now planning for the next SACS training in Poland.
