The need for community-viable, evidence-based intervention strategies for toddlers with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a national priority as earlier diagnosis becomes more common. This webinar will present strategies for taking evidence-based research and applying it to practice. Using video examples, the presenters will discuss the findings from the randomized controlled trial of the Early Social Interaction Project (ESI), which teaches parents how to embed evidence-based intervention strategies and supports in everyday activities in natural environments to promote their child’s active engagement. The webinar will also illustrate strategies for utilizing the Autism Navigator, a collection of web-based courses and tools using extensive video footage, for parents, professionals, and others with the goal of improving outcomes for young children with ASD.
You will be able to:
- list evidence-based intervention strategies and supports for parents to promote active engagement in natural environments for toddlers with ASD
- describe components of the three steps of active engagement for toddlers with ASD to promote initiation and generalization
- identify the active ingredients of collaborative coaching used in the Early Social Interaction model to promote caregiver independence and decision-making
- describe how Autism Navigator courses and tools can help bridge research to practice and build partnerships with primary care, early intervention, and families
