The assessment and treatment of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is an area of growing interest for speech-language pathologists. This self-study video examines the case studies of two children with ASD, focusing on communication, and assessment methodologies and strategies for children (toddler to school age). It provides the theoretical and research background needed to understand the communication challenges of children with ASD, as well as evidence-based information about assessment and intervention techniques. Detailed practical suggestions and videotaped examples are included.
You will be able to:
- identify diagnostic criteria typically used to diagnose pervasive developmental disorders
- identify family-centered processes that can be used as a framework for assessment and intervention
- implement a framework for evaluating the effectiveness of intervention programs
- consider a variety of treatment strategies to support the lifelong learning goals of a child on the autism spectrum
