MHIQ Building Healthy Communities - Structure-mapping: analogical reasoning and the systematicity principle among children with high functioning autism spectrum disorder

Posted on Wednesday 2nd August 2017

G40_Red Zone, Gold Coast Campus with videoconference to other campuses upon request.   Hosted by Dr David Trembath, The Hopkins Centre, MenziesHIQ Presented by Dr Orit Hetzroni, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Developmental Disabilities Program, and manages the Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) lab, at the University of Haifa, Israel.    Difficulties in high levels of processing (LoP) of complex information are well documented in autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Individuals are required to activate high LoP when comparing and generating inferences based primarily on conceptual/structural similarities between the compared analogs. Structure mapping occurs when comparing between similarities and differences of the representations. In complex situations, the process of structure mapping has to be prompted by implicit or by explicit invitation to compare and detect the relations. Systematicity principle maintains the tendency to prefer deep structural relations over shallow basic perceptual ones. In an attempt to understand the role of structure mapping, systematicity principle, and analogical reasoning, a series of studies were conducted among individuals with and without High Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder. This talk will present the results of the studies and propose to further investigate the use of structure mapping for understanding the higher and lower LoP among individuals with ASD.

The SOFFI Method: Supporting Oral Feeding in Fragile Infants Workshop

Posted on Thursday 29th June 2017

This 2 day course provides immediately applicable practical information to help clinicians better identify and treat the factors that impact successful oral feeding of preterm and ill term infants. Utilizing a multidisciplinary approach—both in the NICU and after discharge to early intervention through the first six months—the course emphasizes strategies to facilitate infant abilities and develop caregiver feeding skills. Breastfeeding is emphasized as the best feeding method for infants, with some strategies to support breastfeeding. However, most of the feeding strategies are for bottle feedings, since more infant feeding problems occur with bottle feedings. The objective is to identify feeding readiness and provide intervention strategies from a framework of normal development. A holistic approach integrating the medical fragility of these infants is emphasized, using the BROSS approach and the SOFFISM Method.

*NEW* THC Research Session: Understanding and building resilience in family members providing support to relatives with traumatic injury

Posted on Tuesday 6th June 2017

Family resilience is a focus of research and clinical attention in the field of traumatic injury (brain injury, spinal cord injury). Some have suggested that this presents a paradigm shift in the way researchers understand how a family responds to traumatic injury. In this presentation, the broader context for resilience will be outlined, highlighting (i) the clinical context; (ii) the policy and service delivery implications; (iii) and at a theoretical level, its position as part of the growing positive psychology and strengths-based movements. Approaches to defining resilience will then be outlined, followed by the role of resilience in family adjustment to traumatic injury. An intervention program aimed at building resilience will then be described, and finally future directions for resilience research will be discussed.
