Autism Spectrum Disorders

Seminar Series


Join Kern Autism Network-Autism Society Affiliate in our newest approach at providing up to date information to families, educators, therapist, SLP, MFT, LSW, doctors and community at large. These series of seminars will occur throughout the 2016-2017 school year with speakers in the field of autism expertise, with topics meant to address the entire autism spectrum as defined by the DSM-5.  This is the last seminar series for the school year, with more to follow in Fall 2017 and Spring 2018.

Our 4th series topic and speaker:

-Morning Session (9:00am – 12:00pm): The SCERTS Model; A framework for navigating evidence­ based practices for children with autism

Research in neuroscience helps us understand how children acquire the foundations of social and emotional competence. This research also helps us understand neurodiversity and how children with differences in social emotional development have invisible challenges that can provide obstacles toward neurodevelopment. This session will then introduce the SCERTS model, a comprehensive, multidisciplinary educational approach designed for children on the Autism Spectrum. This model is not exclusive of other treatment approaches and methodologies, but rather provides a framework for those who are seeking guidelines for implementing a comprehensive educational plan that is based on our knowledge of the core developmental challenges, family ­centered care, and our knowledge of the recommended tenets of educational programming. The model was designed to provide guidelines for helping children progress through the stages of becoming a competent social communicator. It was also designed to provide families and educational teams with the help they may need to feel successful in supporting the child. 

-Afternoon Session (1:00pm to 3:00pm): Application of the SCERTS Model across developmental stage

Participants of this course will learn how to determine meaningful, purposeful, and motivating goals and strategies based on a child’s developmental stage, functional needs, and family priorities. The priorities are different when applying evidence­ based practices when a child is before words, has emerging language, or at conversational stages. Video case examples will be reviewed to illustrate how SCERTS provides a framework for selecting appropriate goals for children at each of these stages.
