Team Assessment and Program Planning for Toddlers to School-Age Children With ASD
What does a diagnosis of ASD mean nowadays? Learn about newer diagnostic criteria (DSM-5), updated "gold standard" autism testing (ADOS-2, Toddler Module), and how diagnostic criteria impact speech-language assessment. The Tufts Team uses clinical case studies to demonstrate how SLPs can upgrade language assessment and intervention plans.
You will be able to:
- integrate three neurodevelopmental findings to the diagnostic process of understanding children with ASD
- choose two appropriate test measures to evaluate language impairment in children with ASD
- plan three pragmatic interventions to address problem behaviors in ASD
