Title: Early Social Communication Assessment: Models for Infant Siblings at Risk for ASD
Presenter: Moira Pileggi, M.S. CCC-SLP, Speech-language Pathologist @ Marcus Autism Center
When: Monday, May 21st, 2018
Time: 2 pm – 3 pm (EST)
Link: https://elsforautism.adobeconnect.com/socialcommunication/
Abstract:  Infant siblings of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are at increased risk for ASD. Within longitudinal research at an NIH-funded Autism Center of Excellence (ACE) program currently underway at the Marcus Autism Center in Atlanta, we are utilizing multi-source screening to detect red flags as early as 12 months. By tracking visual and vocal engagement of infant siblings of children with ASD starting at 1-month old, we are increasing knowledge of how ASD presents itself in the early developmental stages.  This presentation will address the use of using eye-tracking technology coupled with direct behavioral assessment to examine early social communication.  Specific assessment protocols aimed at capturing the earliest social communication delays in siblings at risk will be described, alongside talking points used with parents and providers to highlight early vulnerabilities. Assessment videos of red flags in the first year of life will define the subtle yet significant diagnostic markers that community providers can be looking for in this young population. Treatment protocols for toddlers who screen positive will be highlighted, including video examples of interventionists coaching parents within everyday routines at home.

Title: Supporting Communication using Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC)
Presenter: Sarah Waldman, M.S., CCC-SLP, Bilingual Assistive Technology Consultant; Saltillo Corporation
Date: Wednesday, May 30th, 2018
Time: 3 pm – 4 pm (EST)
Link: https://elsforautism.adobeconnect.com/aac/
Abstract: Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) refers to a system, other than speech, that one may use to send messages to another person. Saltillo offers a variety of speech generated devices and software to meet the individuals unique and specific needs for communication. The ability to communicate with assistive technology results in less frustration, greater personal growth, and increased self-esteem. Whether it means that a person can choose a pizza over a sandwich for lunch or can say “I love you” to that special person, communication devices improve lives. This webinar will provide a brief overview of our devices and go in-depth as to how to implement assistive technology to support communication in all environments and with all communication partners.

Receptive Language Skills: Addressing Faulty Stimulus Control

Yvonne Lam, M.A., BCBA , Receptive language involves a learner responding to the vocal verbal behavior of others (Grow & LeBlanc,2013). Deficits in receptive language may result in challenges in a variety of other skill areas such as academics (e.g., reading, writing, and math) and social skills (e.g., following simple instructions, responding to one’s name, receptive identification by name, feature, function and class). While teaching receptive language skills, errors related to faulty stimulus control are particularly problematic. This webinar will review antecedent-based approaches and consequence-based approaches (i.e., error correction procedures) that are often used to address persistent errors and/or faulty stimulus control.
