    Speaker: Lynn Medley, M.S., CCC-SLP

    Title: Stumbling Blocks in Social Development for Individuals with ASD and Related Disorders

    Topic:  This workshop will cover four areas of social development highlighted in the literature on ASD that can be stumbling blocks for individuals with ASD from the toddler years into adulthood.  These are not “baby skills”; although some emerge in typical social development very early, they do not block conversational skill from emerging, but may block social connection from being strong and fluent.  At its conclusion participants will be able to name the four areas, define and differentiate them from one another, and name an example of a time each of them interfered in the social skill of someone they know.  

    Bio: Lynn is a speech-language pathologist, with a rich variety of training from which she combines current methods for the treatment of individuals with ASD, dyspraxia, and other significant communication disorders.  Lynn earned her undergraduate degree at Vanderbilt University, and her Master’s Degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she received additional training at the TEACCH program, in a Sensory Integration private practice, and in a range of home programs utilizing Applied Behavioral Analysis principles.

    In 1995 Lynn moved to Baltimore, where she worked for the Center for Autism and Related Disorders of the Kennedy Krieger Institute.  During her time at CARD as a communication specialist and later as the Clinical Director, Lynn assisted in starting the Achievements Therapeutic Day Program, consulted to school systems in several states, lectured internationally, and provided advocacy and expert witness services for children with autism and their families, while also participating in direct interdisciplinary evaluation and therapy service provision.  From 1999-2000 Lynn served as an Adjunct Professor in the School of Continued Studies in Business and Education at the Johns Hopkins University, where she taught students in the Masters Certificate program in Autism, the first of its kind in the country.

    Early in 2002 Lynn moved to Pennsylvania and opened a private practice providing therapy, advocacy, and consultation to individuals with autism and their families, and consultation and training to school systems.  In 2005, Lynn’s friend and colleague from Kennedy Krieger, Janice Mesaric, joined her in partnership, and they opened Medley & Mesaric Therapy Associates, LLC.  Lynn continues to specialize in social engagement and social cognition across ages and diagnoses, providing evaluative and therapeutic services with individuals with communication disorders, and consultative services to schools and school systems.
