Evidenced Based Intervention Techniques for Children with Autism

There are a variety of interventions for children with autism that claim to be the most effective in improving outcomes for children with autism. This circumstance can make it difficult for clinicians to pick the most suitable intervention for the client with whom they work. In order to select the most appropriate intervention, clinicians should have an understanding of the continuum of interventions including the theoretical framework, key components of intervention techniques, and practical implementation.

Join us at Region 13 for a workshop presented by Anna Dvortcsak, MS CCC-SLP where we will review the continuum of intervention techniques for children with autism and will provide information on selection of the most appropriate treatment technique.

Resource to pass along to parents

Have you discovered the website understood.org yet? This website is designed for parents of a child with learning and attention issues. The website has great resources for anyone wanting to know more about learning disabilities and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder. For example, it can take you through simulations of these different disabilities, helping parents and other adults understand more about the child’s disability. It offers information to help with school work and tips for how to have a great IEP meeting. It offers suggestions for assistive technology and how to empower children to better understand their own disability. We really enjoyed the personal video interviews of students with disabilities and the families who support these children.

understood

We think you will find this website useful and we hope you will share it with the families in your school.
