Language Intervention in Autism: The Implications of Neurobiological Research (Live Webinar)
Understanding the current research on the neurobiological basis of autism will provide the SLP with the knowledge needed to address questions from parents of children with ASD. We will discuss the progress being made on identifying early biomarkers for ASD, which may help the SLP in early identification of children at risk for ASD. We will also discuss what the neurobiology of ASD suggests about how individuals with ASD process information differently and how these differences can be accommodated by making changes in the environmental input controlled by the SLP.
You will be able to:
- Describe the effects on language and cognitive processing of the neurofunctional differences associated with autism.
- Apply the understanding of a neurofunctional model of autism to intervention planning for young and low functioning children with autism.
- Develop intervention plans for verbal children and adolescents with autism based on a neurofunctional model of autism.
