About The Event

You are invited to attend the RI-CART Speaker Series featuring Dr. Marsha Mailick, Emeritus Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This event is free and open to the public.

The focus of Dr. Mailick’s research is on the life course of developmental disabilities. She is interested in how specific developmental disabilities, including autism, fragile X syndrome, and Down syndrome change during adolescence, adulthood, and old age. In addition, she studies how the family environment affects the development of individuals with disabilities during these stages of life, and how parents and siblings of individuals with disabilities are affected.

Sponsored by the Rhode Island Consortium for Autism Research and Treatment, Bailey's Team for Autism, and the Hassenfeld Child Health Innovation Institute.

Don't miss the community talk on November 05-"Aging and Autism: Findings from a Longitudinal Family Study” RSVP required.
