A Webinar from AUCD’s Early Intervention/ Early Childhood Special Interest Group (EIEC SIG): Behavioral interventions have been critical for improving the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Notable achievements include the improved numbers of children with optimal outcomes, and the larger number of children accessing the regular curriculum. Despite these gains, standard behavioral methods have had the least success in social communication outcomes. This talk will focus on the core social communication impairment in children with ASD, evaluations of this core domain and recently developed, effective interventions. REGISTER
This critical training for all interventionists in the Birth to Three system is an overview of best practices including Natural Learning Environments, Coaching as a Style of Interaction, and Primary Service Provider approach to teaming. Focus will be on natural environment practices that support families and children during their regular, everyday activities. Outcomes include developing increased competence in using a family’s everyday activities to support learning; addressing the wealth of learning opportunities possible in an activity vs. focusing on only one skill; understanding that child interest is essential to increased participation and learning; and developing competence in supporting families and other caregivers during their everyday activities. As one very skilled program director put it: “We really thought we were using natural learning environment practices, but through this training we realized how much deeper we could have been going in order to support our families developing the confidence and competence they need to help their own children.”
This training, tailored to Birth to Three providers, will focus on: Recognition of Red Flags, Impact of DV on children, Resiliency of children, How to engage in a conversation about DV with caregivers, Safety planning for families and home visitors. Presenter: Kelly Annelli, Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
