Event Details

There is considerable discussion today about the importance of evidence-based practices (EBPs) when working with individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).  However, the great majority of that discussion focuses around young children with little attention paid to adolescents or adults.  This presentation will provide an overview of the implications of evidence-based practice in support of effective transition(s) with adolescents and adults.  Particular emphasis will be placed on EBP and targeting socially important outcomes, transition planning, community based instruction, adaptive behavior intervention, employment, and quality of life. 

Presented by Peter Gerhardt, Ed.D.
