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.

Learning Outcomes
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
This free CEU course is part of ASHA's 8-month Case Studies program. Enjoy one free course per month through August 2017, and get practical, real-world solutions to apply in your work setting. Don't forget to check out the rest of our free courses!
