Sally J. Rogers is a developmental psychologist and a Professor of Psychiatry at the M.I.N.D. Institute, University of California Davis.  She is the principal investigator of several autism research projects, including one of the ten NIMH/NICHD funded Autism Centers of Excellence (ACE) network projects, involving a multi-site controlled trial of an infant-toddler treatment for autism, with her collaborators Cathy Lord at University of Michigan and Annette Estes at University of Washington. She is also the director of an interdisciplinary postdoctoral training grant for autism researchers.  She is involved at the international level in major clinical and research activities involving autism, including membership in the executive board of the International Society for Autism Research, an editor of the journal Autism Research, and a member of the Autism, PDD, and other Developmental Disorders workgroup for the DSM V.   

She received her Ph.D. from Ohio State University, with a specialization in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities.  She has spent her career studying cognitive and social development in young children with disabilities.  She has published over 150 papers, chapters, and books on topics including cognitive development in children with profound mental retardation, cognitive and social development of blind infants, symptoms of toddlers with Fragile X Syndrome, as well as numerous papers on clinical and developmental aspects of autism. She has been very interested in imitation problems in autism for many years and has made seminal contributions to this line of autism research, including a recent book. Her current research focuses in two areas: on developing effective interventions for infants and toddlers with autism that families and professionals can deliver, and on earliest identification of autism in infancy, which she carries out with her colleague, Sally Ozonoff.  In addition to research, she is also a clinician, providing evaluation, treatment, and consultation to infants, children and adults with autism and their families. The intervention model that she developed with Geri Dawson and other colleagues at University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, University of Washington, and University of California Davis – the Denver Model and the Early Start - is internationally known and the treatment manual and instrumentation for this approach has been recently published.
