Infant Predictors of Social Communication and Autism: A Developmental Cascades Perspective
Please join us for the next presentation in our 2022-2023 Duke Center for Autism Speaker Series! Our speaker will be Jessica Bradshaw, PhD, associate professor of psychology at the University of South Carolina. Dr. Bradshaw's research focuses on early identification and intervention of autism spectrum disorder in the first years of life. Specifically, she is interested in: 1) quantifying the emergence of, and interrelations between, social behavior, visual attention, and motor skills in neonates and infants, particularly in the first six months of life, 2) identifying altered neurodevelopmental pathways that lead to the emergence of autism, and 3) translating these basic findings to early detection and intervention strategies for ASD. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE AT THE LINK PROVIDED.
