CARMELA MINISCALCO

GNC SWEDEN

PROFILE

Carmela Miniscalco is an adjunct senior lecturer in speech and language pathology at the Gillberg Neuropsychiatry Centre at the University of Gothenburg. She has worked clinically with children with speech and language difficulties for 30 years. She has authored around 30 articles and a book chapter on language and communication difficulties and how they relate to neuropsychiatric disorders. She is currently supervising four PhD students. Her main interest within the clinic, research and teaching is the development of language and communication and language disorders in children with autism.
Carmela is one of the project leaders of AUDIE (AUtism Detection and Intervention in Early life) – a project which was conducted at the Child Neuropsychiatry Clinic (CNC) at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in collaboration with child care centres and habilitation centres in Gothenburg 2009-2011. She is the main applicant and principal investigator in the FAS/FORTE 3-year project “Language ability in children with autism spectrum disorder: A population-based longitudinal study”, running through 2018. The project includes a follow-up of the AUDIE group in primary school. She was also the main applicant and project manager for the Swedish Inheritance Fund Commission (Arvsfonden) 3-year project that started at the CNC in 2013: “Interventions for young children with autism: Knowledge, method development and intervention from a participatory perspective”. The purpose of the project was to improve the interventions offered to preschool children with autism after assessment, through 1) parent training in the clinic, 2) increased preschool support and 3) knowledge dissemination. Parental education for small children with autism is now included as a clinical routine after completed assessment at the CNC. FORTE recently authorised a 3-year grant for the project “A population-based study on language development in children after exposure to per- and polyfluorinated substances (PFAS)”. Carmela is the main applicant and project manager, and the study is set to begin in 2019.
