Effective Practices in Autism: Lecture/Discussion Research Seminar; Practicum Laboratory
The course will focus on the identification and implementation of evidence-based practices through lecture/discussion sessions. Defining research evidence, and a review of the supporting literature for evidence-based practices including evaluations of research designs will be a focus of the course. The implementation of practices with fidelity and in an ethical manner also will be a focus as well working in collaboration to assure the maintenance and generalization of functional skills. Practicum requirements include the observation and implementation of evidence-based practices in the field. Ongoing progress monitoring through data collection will be included as part of the practicum.
