Section Description

This course is offered as a one-week intensive session featuring international, national, and regional experts in autism spectrum disorders (ASD). It is open to community teams and the families they serve in Vermont and interdisciplinary teams across the New England area, nationwide and abroad. Participants represent several disciplines, including speech-language pathologists, special educators, general educators, medical professionals, family members, administrators, early interventionists, paraprofessionals, occupational therapists, physical therapists, psychologists, child care service providers, and community resource parents. The content emphasizes best practices in providing home and community-based services for infants and toddlers with ASD and their families, using peers to foster social engagement in preschool settings, understanding the personal accounts of those with ASD and ways to improve their educational outcomes, describing the impact of theory of mind on the social communication of individuals with ASD, and providing quality services with limited resources. The primary goals will be to: 1) present and explain outcomes research for infants, toddlers and preschoolers with ASD who receive evidence-based interventions; 2) describe the impact of theory of mind deficits on social communication in children with ASD; 3) discuss the need for improved educational and vocational outcomes for adolescents and young adults with ASD; and, 4) identify those services that can be implemented with the greatest efficiency and effectiveness.
