Meetings maintaining the momentum from AIRS 4th Annual Meeting
Building on the momentum started by workshops and conversations at the AIRS 4th Annual Meeting, two groups met in September to continue to plan for future AIRS milestones.
AIRS Test Battery
At an early morning Test Battery workshop on Friday, August 24th, participants identified the need for a revised version of the AIRS Test Battery aimed at children aged 5 to 8. The group, composed of Mayumi Adachi, Stephanie Boisvert, Mike Forrester, Helga Gudmundsdottir, Beatriz Ilari and Stefanie Stadler Elmer, created a document capturing their recommendations for revisions, and 5 of the 6 met via videoconference on August 28th. The resulting documentation has been submitted to Sub-theme 1.3 Leader, Annabel Cohen, and Bing-Yi Pan for review and consideration.
