MIDLAND, Pa., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Author and psychologist Dr. Jed Baker will discuss his work with autism and social communication disorders during a conference co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School.

"This is the sixth of a series of eight conferences by distinguished autism lecturers that PA Cyber is helping to sponsor because of our concern over the dramatic increase in the incidence of autism," said Dr. Nick Trombetta, CEO of the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School.

"Social Skill Training" is scheduled for 8:30 to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, June 19, at the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center in Midland. A $75 registration fee includes breakfast, lunch, afternoon refreshments and handouts. Act 48 credits are available for Pennsylvania teachers.

The National Network of Digital Schools also is a co-sponsor of the conference series, hosted by the Hope Learning Center in an effort to raise awareness of issues concerning Autism Syndrome Disorders (ASD). Asha Persaud is director and founder of the Hope Learning Center.

Dr. Baker is a behavioral consultant for schools in New Jersey and has authored several books, most recently No More Meltdowns (2008). He is the director of the Social Skills Training Project and has been a clinical psychologist since 1992. He serves on the professional advisory board of ASPEN, an information network for parents of children with Asperger's Syndrome.

His research looks at the relationship between social skills, behavior and developmental disorders and their therapeutic solutions.

Upcoming conferences presented by the Hope Learning Center will feature other internationally recognized experts on ASD: Temple Grandin, Ph.D., on Oct. 10; and Tony Attwood, Ph.D., tentatively scheduled for November.

The Hope Learning Center, located in Wexford, Pa., is dedicated to improving the lives of children with autism and their families through early diagnosis and therapy, education, curriculum development, teacher training, family support, arts outreach, technology and public awareness.
