Autism experts to discuss research advances

From page A5 | April 02, 2014 |

UC Davis autism researchers Sally J. Rogers and Judy Van de Water will present a free public talk on clinical and research advances in autism spectrum disorder from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 16, in the UC Davis MIND Institute auditorium, 2825 50th St. in Sacramento.

Rogers, a professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, is the creator of the highly regarded Early Start Denver Model method of early intervention for autism spectrum disorder.

She will discuss a program at a Sacramento-area high school to foster friendships and social ties between teens with autism and their typically developing peers. She also will provide updates on the progress of her research into developing effective interventions for infants and toddlers with autism and their families.

Van de Water is an immunologist and professor in the department of internal medicine whose research examines the role of the immune system in autism. She is the director of the UCD Center for Children’s Environmental Health, which seeks to better understand the effects of environmental exposures on children’s health.

Van de Water’s research has identified that specific antibodies target fetal brain proteins in the blood of some women whose children are later diagnosed with autism. It is the first to pinpoint a specific risk factor for a significant subset of autism cases, as well as a biomarker for drug development and early diagnosis.

The panel also will feature two community members, Antoinette and Fallon O’Neill. Fallon O’Neill will discuss his transition to adulthood with high-functioning autism in the academic and working worlds. He attends Sacramento City College and works part-time at Nugget Markets. His mother, Antoinette, will share her experiences helping her son navigate the complexities of participating in the state of California’s Workability program and finding and maintaining employment.
