Look Who’s Talking: 7 Evidence-Based Ways to Teach Children with Autism to Communicate

Which intervention approaches are most effective for addressing the communication and social interaction needs of children with autism spectrum disorders?  Researchers have made enormous gains in our knowledge of the best ways to intervene, but the lag between research and implementation in the “real world” is estimated to be 20 years!  Learn how to match child characteristics to the features of evidence-based interventions to achieve optimal outcomes.  As a result of attending this session, participants will be able to:

  1. identify prelinguistic and linguistic behaviors associated with ASDs
  2. compare and contrast features of 7 established and emerging interventions
  3. match intervention approaches to child characteristics and setting capacities
