Bilingualism and ASD
28 April, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm€3
April is World Autism Month
In our efforts to continue to spread awareness, educate further and promote acceptance of Autism Spectrum Disorder, ASLP is proud to host three CPD talks, throughout the month of April, on this condition.
There is currently, little research that addresses the effects of dual language exposure on the language abilities of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This webinar will address the gaps and myths associated with bilingualism and ASD by presenting the results gathered from my Master’s degree study. The purpose of this study was to compare the language abilities of children with ASD who are exposed to predominantly one language at home to the language abilities of children with ASD who are exposed to two relatively equal proportions of languages at home.
Presenter: Ms. Donna Attard, B.Sc. (Hons), M.Sc.(Melit)
Non – members: €3 per webinar or €6 if you register for all 3 webinars.
This webinar is open to SLPs, early years educators, other professionals and carers.
