This webinar provides practitioners who work with students with autism spectrum disorders at all age levels, with in-depth, practical, descriptive, and comparative information on several of the most popular research-based interventions and approaches, including Applied Behavior Analysis, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS); Social Stories; and Treatment and Education of Autistic and Communication-Related Handicapped Children (TEACCH). The research base and demonstrated efficacy area of each approach is discussed. The information presented will enable teachers, administrators, and parents to differentiate between effective interventions and those without an evidence base.
