Given the social-communication difficulties and repetitive behavioral patterns inherent in young children with an ASD, assessment and intervention processes are often impacted by challenging behaviors. Therefore, addressing these challenging behaviors within the occupational therapy process is a significant component of practice for occupational therapy practitioners. Practice guidelines and evidence-based reviews from multiple fields have begun to elucidate common themes across interventions yielding favorable outcomes in young children with an ASD. This webcast session presents these evidence-based themes and apply them to occupational therapy practice in early childhood and across contexts.
At the conclusion of the session, learners will be able to:
- Identify common features of early childhood aged children with an ASD targeted by occupational therapy interventions
- Identify recommended intervention practices for early childhood aged children with an ASD
- Identify common evidence-based themes across assessment and intervention practices yielding favorable outcomes for individuals with an ASD
