Autism Spectrum

Emily Beddow earned her Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy from Towson University and enjoys working with children of all ages. She has been a part of the Schreiber Pediatric team for over 12 years where she works with patients that have autism. Emily is a proud mother of three, two of which are in high school and the other in college. She resides in Lampeter and when she's not helping patients, she enjoys spending her time exercising, reading, listening to music and working outside.

In her presentation titled, "Autism Spectrum," she addresses:

  • How occupational therapists work with individuals with autism
  • What behavior can be seen on the autism spectrum
  • How feeding/eating can be influenced by autism
  • Socialization and austism
  • Use of social stories and schedules to help children with autism

This presentation is a mixture of styles including interactive, lecture and PowerPoint, and typically runs just over an hour. Computer access, PowerPoint and a projector screen are needed for this presentation. Handouts will be distributed.
