Event Details

Autism Spectrum Disorder In Schools:
  Evidence-Based Assessment and Intervention

Lee A. Wilkinson, PhD

Epidemiological studies indicate a dramatic increase in the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) over the past decade. Yet, compared with general population estimates, many students remain underidentified and underserved in our schools. School and mental health professionals must be prepared to recognize the presence of risk factors and/or early warning signs of autism ASD, engage in case finding, and be familiar with screening and assessment tools and intervention strategies to ensure that students are being identified and provided with the appropriate programs and services. The call for greater use of evidence-based practice has also increased demands that professionals stay current with the latest methods of evaluation and intervention, and become skilled with the most up-to-date screening and assessment tools. The objective of this presentation is to provide participants with guidance in the selection and use of evidence-based assessment measures and intervention strategies for school-age children with ASD. 

Participants will be able to:

          ·          Compare & Contrast the DSM-5 and IDEA definitions of ASD

          ·          Utilize a multi-tier strategy to screen at-risk students

          ·          List the domains of a comprehensive developmental assessment

          ·          Describe evidence-based screening/assessment instruments

          ·          Analyze research reviews and select evidence-based interventions/treatments
