Evidence-based interventions continue to show amazing promise in helping students with autism develop new skills.
Even as the prevalence of autism grows, educators and parents alike have good cause for hope. This course begins by stressing the importance of early intervention. The sooner that educators and therapists can work with students with autism, the better their prognoses will be for increased skill development. This course also reminds that while there are some clusters of characteristics, each child with autism must be viewed uniquely. You’ll also hear about many approaches that are popular but still unproven. However, the heart of the course is a helpful primer on all of the interventions that are proven by science to be effective.
