Event Description
The Center for Family Intervention Science is excited to kick off its second annual Speaker Series with two lectures this Fall quarter. The mission of our Center and these lectures is to promote family-centered healthcare approaches across all disciplines and domains of research, education and practice. This year, the Center will host a simulcast room where students, staff and faculty can come, hang out and watch the lecture. We will then host the videos on our YouTube channel and website for later viewing.

Lifecourse Health Development for Individuals with Neuodevelopmental Conditions: Visualizing a Preferred Future

Robert Palisano, PT, will discuss oifecourse health development (LCHD), a biopsychosocial model that conceptualizes health development as a nonlinear, adaptive process that occurs through person-environment transactions that change over time. Planning for the future, beginning in childhood, and the timing and social structuring of experiences in “real-life” settings enable desired social participation and prepare children and adolescents for successful transition to adulthood. The perspective that modifiable environmental factors often restrict health development and implications for policy and coordination of services and supports are discussed.
