Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
This course includes three recorded sessions from the 2018 online conference “Children With Autism: Matching Interventions to Communication Needs.” Taken together, these sessions provide practical strategies for incorporating and empowering various stakeholders – including family members, peers, educators, support personnel, and other professional team members – to support school-age students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The conference included a total of 13 sessions, with the broad goal of presenting current best practices in intervention for school-age students with ASD. Conference sessions focused on tips and strategies SLPs can use to choose the most appropriate interventions for each child using an evidence-based approach that balances family preferences, research, and clinical judgment/expertise.
