Join Dr. Sally Rogers, UC Davis MIND Institute, for a presentation on the latest findings on effects of intervention on the youngest children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) on Thursday, August 22 at the Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences. This lecture will discuss the need for intervention models for younger and younger children being identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and the effects of interventions that focus on this age group.
The number of children who develop autism now overshadows all other early childhood disabilities and represents more than 1 percent of all the children in our country. Supporting and improving the outcomes of young children with autism and other disabilities is a national commitment and health priority, and a community and family necessity.
Dr. Sally Rogers, Professor with the UC Davis MIND Institute, specializes in conducting developmental research into autism and other developmental disorders
and working with children with developmental disabilities and their families, especially young children with autism. She studies early developmental processes, including imitation, social-communicative behavior, and development of motor skills, language, and social interaction patterns.
