Learning objectives

Working with individuals with ASD can be a complex and challenging area of practice.  This session will provide participants with knowledge and understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders in early childhood to age 7 years.

Upon successful completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the diagnostic criteria for ASD (American Psychological Association, 2013) and discuss the role of speech pathologists in diagnosis of ASD.

  • Discuss the current evidence base of ASD intervention

  • Describe key socio-communication and learning to learn skills critical to early intervention and explain at least one strategy for teaching each of these skills.  

  • Describe the ABC model and why it is an important component to functional communication training.

  • Identify possible functions of behaviour when given descriptive data.

  • Set clear and achievable goals for functional based communication and develop a plan of activities and strategies for achieving those goals.  

Who should attend?

This workshop would be relevant to speech pathologists who work with children diagnosed ASD or related disabilities, and/or young children not yet diagnosed that are demonstrating signs and symptoms of ASD.

Some experience or knowledge of ASD presentation and symptoms would be beneficial. Speech pathology students who have a clinical interest in ASD and/or who have had clinical placement experience in ASD are welcome to attend.
