Why attend EDFA’s Tony Attwood webinar?
It is estimated that 1 in 4 Anorexia Nervosa sufferers are believed to have Autism.
Research suggests that autistic traits may not have been recognized or diagnosed prior to eating disorder treatment. Significantly, these heightened autistic traits are associated with poorer treatment outcomes, suggesting that treatment may need to be adapted for this population*.
