Robin Hansen, M.D.

April is Autism Awareness Month, and the Arthur F. Turner Community Library in West Sacramento will host a presentation on the subject by Dr. Robin Hansen of the UC Davis MIND Institute on Tuesday, April 19.

Hansen will speak at 6:30 p.m. at the library, 1212 Merkley Ave. in West Sacramento, about “Early Signs of Autism and Early Interventions.”

She is a professor of pediatrics, director of the UCD Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities and director of clinical programs at the MIND Institute. She is a board-certified developmental-behavioral pediatrician with vast experience in treating children with neurodevelopmental disorders.

Hansen heads a multidisciplinary clinic that diagnoses children, plans/initiates intervention strategies and works closely with patient families. She has developed services for families affected by parental substance abuse, infant mental health programs, children in foster care and children with externalizing behavior disorders within school settings, and has been recognized by several community agencies for her work.

Her clinical research has focused on children’s temperament and its effects on parenting, long-term effects of prenatal drug exposure, gene-environment interactions related to causes and early identification of autism spectrum disorders and evidence-based treatments for neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism.

Hansen’s presentation is made possible through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, which funds family literacy for children and adults and homework help programs at the West Sacramento library.
