Training Description

Target Audience: Teachers, evaluators and professionals working with young children with ASD

Despite the fact that ASD can be reliably diagnosed in children as young as 2, the average age of first time diagnosis of ASD remains around the age of 4. This finding is especially concerning when considering the fact that the strongest predictor of optimal outcome in children with ASD is early intervention. Early intensive intervention between the ages of 3 to 5 capitalizes upon a critical window of rapid brain development. Without an accurate diagnosis, toddlers with ASD do not receive appropriate treatment and miss the opportunity to forever alter their developmental trajectory. This has lifelong consequences not only for the child’s development, but also for their family and for society as a whole. The objective for this presentation is to:

Training Objectives:

• Appreciate the importance of early identification in ASD
• Become familiar with the DSM-V diagnostic criteria for ASD
• Learn about the manifestation of signs and symptoms of ASD in infants and toddlers
• Contrast those symptoms with social and communication skills in typically developing infants and toddlers
• Identify groups at high risk for ASD
• Gain an understanding of when to refer to a specialist and how to have that conversation with parents
• Obtain familiarity with evidence-based assessment instruments including the ADOS-2 and ADI-R
• Review evidenced based intervention strategies and resources for families 
• Strategies for the development of social skill in young children with ASD 
• Resources for identifying and supporting young children with ASD
