Kanner lecture

Janneke de Ruiter was one of the two speakers at the Kanner lecture, held at April 23rd. She presented research findings from Lucinda Pouw's PhD project on emotion regulation in children and adolescents with ASD. Janneke explained to an audience of psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers that children with ASD might display behavioural problems such as aggressive behaviour because of limited abilities to regulate their own emotions during interactions with other people.
