Reading about What Works

Reading about What Works

I recently came across a wealth of information to share with everyone.  It is a group of in-depth descriptions of twenty-four methods that help children with Autism learn communication skills. You will have heard of many of these twenty-four methods if you work with children with Autism or are a parent of a child with Autism, but you may not know about all of them in depth.  

The National Professional Development Center of Autism Spectrum Disorders chose these twenty-four methods because each one has been shown to work (they have evidence of efficacy) in multiple studies by different researchers.  

Personal experience, careful observation, and attention to the child are critical to effectively supporting a child with Autism. Carefully incorporating methods based on evidence from research studies increases effectiveness. 

Along with a rich description of each of these evidence-based methods, there is a review of the research on each method, a detailed step-by-step implementation guide, and a checklist used to measure whether you used the method as described in the literature. 

You can find this site by going to The National Professional Development Center of Autism Spectrum Disorders website, clicking on Evidence-Based Practices and finally clicking on EBP Briefs.

 I hope some of you enjoy the wealth that this site offers as much as I do!
