Enhancing Pretend Play Skills in Preschoolers with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Free Case Studies Course
Please add only one copy of each free Case Study course to your cart.
This course is available for free for ASHA members from August 1–31, 2017.
SLPs and audiologists should use the most current evidence-based
research to achieve the best outcomes for their clients. This course will share
current and emerging research in pretend play as a method of developing
communication skills. It will provide a clear rationale for SLPs to work with
preschoolers with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) on pretend play skills as part
of speech-language intervention. Additionally, the course will present goals
and strategies SLPs can put into practice in their work with these children.
You will be able to:
- use current
research to explain to parents, teachers, and administrators why pretend play
goals should be considered in planning treatment to support the communication
development of children with ASD
- enhance the
implementation of clinical research in intervention with preschoolers with ASD
by using a developmental sequence to guide the selection of appropriate,
individualized pretend play goals
- support the
development of pretend play with evidence-based strategies that take into
account behavior and learning patterns that are commonly encountered in young
children with ASD
