Award from the Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics
Lectureship Award, 2019
Michelle Garcia Winner, a speech-language pathologist MA, CCC-SLP and the founder of the Social Thinking Methodology, was honored to receive the Lectureship Award from the Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics (SDBP) at their Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. in September 2019. The SDBP Lectureship Award honors an individual who has made a significant contribution to the field of developmental and behavioral pediatrics.
At the meeting, Michelle presented a keynote address on the Social Thinking-Social Competency Model and breakout session on social anxiety management to an interdisciplinary audience of clinical psychologists and nurse practitioners in addition to the developmental and behavioral pediatricians. Michelle enjoyed teaching and sharing ideas with attendees. One pediatrician told her after the meeting, “This information is so important, it should be taught everywhere.”
SDBP advocates for an integrated approach to the biological, psychological, social, educational, and cultural influences on children, youth, and their families. As the leading voice for interprofessional developmental and behavioral pediatric care, the mission of SDBP is to improve the health and well-being of children and families by promoting high quality research, education, advocacy, and practice.
