Webcast Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the Autism Research Institute?
A: The Autism Research Institute (ARI), a non-profit organization, was established in 1967. ARI is primarily devoted to conducting research, and to disseminating the results of research, on the causes of autism and on methods of preventing, diagnosing and treating autism and other severe behavioral disorders of childhood. We provide information based on research to parents and professionals throughout the world.
Q: Why are the speakers words not 'in syc' with the video on my computer?
A: There are many reasons why a flash video & it's audio can fall out of "sync". System cache, browser type and processor workload are just to name a few. The result is that the lips of the presenter move at a different pace than their voice. The solution is simple. Once the video starts to play, click your mouse on the little black stick on the bottom left hand corner of the player window (illustrated). This action realigns the audio and video sync.
