Learn & Lunch: Sleep in Individuals with Autism & their Families

December 5, 2018 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am EST


Join us for a FREE Learn & Lunch: Sleep in Individuals with Autism and their Families

Presented by A.J. Schwichtenberg, Assistant Professor, Purdue University Department of Human Development and Family Studies

#PurdueHHS #TakeGiantLeaps #Purdue150

FREE but RSVP required by November 29 at https://giving.purdue.edu/s/1461/campaign/index.aspx?sid=1461&gid=1010&pgid=9299&content_id=18780

AJ Schwichtenberg is an interdisciplinary researcher with appointments in Human Development and Family Studies, Psychological Sciences (Courtesy), and Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (Courtesy). She currently serves as co-director of the Purdue Autism Cluster.

Dr. Schwichtenberg’s research evaluates the intersections of autism, family, treatment and sleep. In this Learn and Lunch presentation, she’ll highlight some recent studies from her Developmental Studies Laboratory, which assess: (1) roles of sleep during early behavioral treatment, (2) sleep in families raising children with ASD, and (3) sleep’s contributions to autism risk.

“I wear two hats, one as a pediatric sleep researcher, and one as a scientist interested in developmental trajectories in autism. And, as you can imagine, those intersect because the majority of children who are on the autism spectrum also have sleep problems and those sleep problems can influence their development. I am also interested in developmental trajectories in children at risk in general, not just autism, such as children who were born pre-term or who have older siblings with other developmental delays.” -AJ Schwichtenberg
