The Neurobiological Basis of Autism: Relevant Findings in Language Development

Modern neuropathological procedures and structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques allow us to study the brain in living humans, including young children with autism. This research provides us with a greater understanding of the neurobiological basis of autism. These studies suggest that autism involves an abnormal maturational process that affects the development of gray matter brain structures, white matter cortical connections, and how the brain performs functions, particularly those that require the frontal and posterior areas to synchronize. Perfect for the clinical SLP, this program will report on the major neuropathological structural imaging and functional imaging findings in autism, particularly those related to language development.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • discuss recent findings from neuropathological, structural, and fMRI research in autism
  • analyze the impact of neurobiological differences on autism’s behavioral presentation
  • describe the implications of these findings on early identification of children with autism and intervention with individuals who have autism spectrum disorders
