He followed this up with organizing International Training in India in December 2013 and a globally pioneering validation study is presented in EACD (European Academy of Childhood Disability) annual conference in Stockholm in June 2016. Dr. Bhattacharya brings this standard in his Indian Centre at CDC, AGH, Kolkata. Three separate poster presentations co-authored by him on the topic was presented in 2017 EACD annual conference in Amsterdam, 6 in Tbilisi, Georgia in 2018, a whooping 12 in Paris in 2019 amidst steep international competition, contributing to the largest Indian academic presence in the history of this European body. Now, 10 posters co-authored by him, has again being presented for the upcoming EACD annual conference in Poznan, Polland in November 2020 along with 2 more prestigious Oral Presentations, taking the tally back to 12 again.

Autism Spectrum Disorder:

Research shows that early determination of and mediations for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are bound to have major long term beneficial outcomes on indications and later abilities. It (ASD) can be analyzed in children before they are 2 years old. With early intervention, a few kids with ASD gain such an excess of headway that they never again face any hardships when they are grown up.

Children who come here will go through the same level of diagnostic process as that of in a CDC of the UK (See Development Paediatrician). Every child at NCDC receives a very similar intervention through the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) praised by an Adjunct Professor of the Sydney University of Australia. The treatment is cost-effective and the diagnostic process is lengthy but with the cooperation of the patients, the intervention of the multidisciplinary team and usage of tools like Gold Standard Diagnostic Tools for Autism with Griffiths tool and other diagnostic assessment tools like Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID-III) , ADOS (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule), ADI-R ( Autism Diagnostic Interview) the assessment becomes more effective. Key Focus Areas: Current medicines for ASD is to diminish indications that slow down day by day working and quality of life. ASD influences every individual in a different way, implying that individuals with ASD have remarkable qualities and challenges and different treatment needs. Therefore, treatment designs generally include various experts and are catered toward the person with a diverse approach.

Apart from medicine, behavioural management training can ensure the wellbeing of the child and parents. It can also influence the social environment or home settings, or a blend of settings. Caregivers and experts must connect with one another and the individual with ASD to guarantee that treatment objectives and progress are measuring up to assumptions Autism Diagnosis and screening. Treatment roadmap and parents coaching Action mapping and treatments Progress measurement and advancement of the process
