Limited Capacity seats available

Unfortunately, young children with ASD often receive segregated services, partly due to the still lingering “readiness” and “behavior control limitation” myths (Strain, Schwartz, & Barton, 2011). There are several comprehensive treatment models (CTMs) that incorporate evidence-based practices to offer economical services related to the core characteristics of ASD, but reviews have not focused on inclusive CTMs (National Research Council, 2001; Odom, Boyd, Hall & Hume, 2010; Rogers & Vismara, 2008). This session describes a review of studies of inclusive CTMs for young children with ASD published over 17 years that outlines common components, study quality and effectiveness.

Learning Objectives: 

a) Identify inclusive comprehensive treatment models (CTMs) for young children (toddlers and preschoolers) with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
b) Describe components of effective inclusive CTMs for young children with ASD
c) Summarize the outcomes for children with ASD who are enrolled in these programs
d) Discuss the role attendees can take to adapt and implement strategies embedded within CTMs to improve outcomes for young children with ASD within inclusive settings.
