Weill Cornell Medicine Events

Autism Discussion

One in 44 children in the United States is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Because autism is a spectrum disorder, each person with autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges.

Join us for a discussion to learn more about autism; how it is diagnosed, treated, and other steps you or someone you know can use when caring for a child with autism during the Weill Cornell Medicine Wellness Series in partnership with the Harry Belafonte 115th Street Library.

Michelle Gorenstein-Holtzman, Psy.D., is an Assistant Professor of Psychology in Clinical Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medicine.

Prior to joining Weill Cornell Medicine, Dr. Gorenstein-Holtzman was the Director of Community Outreach at the Seaver Autism Center. In her role there, Dr. Gorenstein-Holtzman worked with various community agencies to disseminate evidence based treatments for autistic children, teens, and young adults.

At the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain, Dr. Gorenstein-Holtzman specializes in adult diagnostic evaluations. Further, she leads evidenced based social skills groups for autistic adults. Dr. Gorenstein-Holtzman is interested in adapting cognitive behavior therapy for autistic adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety and/or depression.
