    Parents, grandparents, caregivers and ADULT SIBLINGS, please join us to talk about siblings' effects on each other, and explore an international model of sibling support now available in Pittsburgh!  


    Sibshops acknowledge that being the brother of sister of a person with special needs is for some a good thing, others a not-so-good thing, and for many, somewhere in-between.  They reflect a belief that brothers and sisters have much to offer one another - if they are given a chance.


    Groups forming now!  Target age is 8-13 years old but some flexibility may be available.

     Presenter:  Diane L. Williams, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

     Associate Professor, Anna Rangos Rizakus Chair for Health Sciences & Ethics,Department of Speech-Language Pathology,  Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA    

    Course Description:  Research is leading to new understanding of the way individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) learn and process language.  These findings can inform the design of interventions that accommodate the way the brains of individuals with ASD function. This conference will review this research and a neurofunctional model of autism to the development of language from infancy through adulthood. Strategies will be given for language acquisition and for individuals who are verbal but have difficulty with the comprehension and use of some language forms.

    Learning Objectives:

    At the conclusion of this presentation, the participants will be able to:

     1.  Discuss recent findings from behavioral and neuroimaging research on cognitive and linguistic processing in children and adults with autism spectrum disorders.

    2.  Describe the developmental implications of the neurofunctional differences associated with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) on cognitive and linguistic processing.

    3. Apply these research findings to the design of language intervention for children, adolescents, and adults with autism at various functioning levels.
