This self-directed module, the third in a series developed by the Central Missouri Rapid Response Team, provides a general overview of evidence-based practices and interventions for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
This module includes brief descriptions of evidence-based interventions that are supported by scientific research and what those interventions have in common. It also provides some general strategies that are used with children who have challenges in communication, social interaction, changes and transitions, and sensory input. Guidelines for making intervention decisions are provided, along with resources for more information about specific interventions.
