Recent surveys have revealed that 1 in 59 children with hearing loss also receive services for autism spectrum disorders (ASD) (Szymanski,Brice, Lam & Hotto, 2012). Children with deafness and autism have complex needs that require strong collaboration from a multi-disciplinary team for successful interventions. Service providers may feel uncertain about ways to coordinate and set priorities for these children. This series will explore multidisciplinary perspectives on deafness when it coexists with autism in an effort to help hearing health professionals gain better knowledge of autism and help understand the value of cross disciplinary collaboration. Multi-disciplinary perspectives will be offered to help professionals recognize the early signs of autism coexisting with deafness, learn strategies to target more effective evaluation and interventions and improve services to the child and family. This series will provide resources and clinical examples of Music Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Early Intervention and School Age Communication interventions for this unique population.
