Overcoming Challenges and Identifying a Consensus about Autism Intervention Programming
Stephens, Carolyn E.
International Journal of Special Education, v20 n1 p35-49 2005
Identifying effective interventions to help children with autism reach their potential has been a source of disagreement among professionals and parents for decades. The complexities of the challenges that face children with autism, and uncertainty about best practices, have delayed progress. This article identifies seven critical program components that address some of the challenges associated with providing effective and efficient autism intervention programs. The results for children who participate in these programs encourage belief in the ability of children with autism to respond with positive change to appropriately designed and implemented interventions.
