|Textbook||Methods for Teaching Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Evidence-Based Practices|
Autism impacts 1 in 68 people. The increase in the incidence of autism has been described as epidemic. In reaction to this increase, researchers have identified evidenced based practices (EBP) that provide best outcomes for people with autism. Despite having a comprehensive list of “what works,” few people are trained in these practices.
This online course with a practical lab is the first comprehensive evidenced based practices course for autism in the state. EBP for Autism will allow in-service professionals to develop EBP materials to effectively support students. This course promises to provide current interventionists with the tools necessary to implement the specialized interventions required for people with autism.
Undergraduate and graduate students, Evidence Based Practices for Autism: A practical approach for pre-service professionals will be offered May 26th – July 1st. Details will be announced shortly.
