Blue Ridge Webinar: "DMAIC & Autism: A Sample Size of One"

"DMAIC and Autism: A Sample Size of One"

Overview:  This is an interactive overview of how DMAIC can be utilized in a home environment to improve the quality of life for a child diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum.  The discussion takes the participants through how DMAIC was successfully used to make viable differences with live metrics and results.

Why One in every 68 children is now diagnosed with Autism.  With no "cure", what are parents and relatives to do?  This session shares how one set of parents proactively applied the DMAIC process to help with their quality of life.  The same tools and skills can be applied to any other form of personal or professional issue.  This session rated first at the 2016 ASQ WCQI conference when it was presented there.  It leaves people motivated and refreshed with a plan of how to manage systems with a toolkit that they can easily apply.
