Practices in Early Intervention for Children with Autism: A Comparison with the National Research Council Recommended Practices
Downs, Robyn Conley; Downs, Andrew
Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, v45 n1 p150-159 Mar 2010
The National Research Council (2001) report was reviewed to identify and document recommended practices for programs serving young children with autism spectrum disorder. Twenty seven surveys inquiring about program practices were sent to educational service districts, school districts, and neurodevelopmental centers in Oregon and Washington that had a program specifically designed to serve young children with autism spectrum disorder. Survey results indicated that the practices currently utilized within autism early intervention programs are in many ways inconsistent with the recommended practices identified in the literature. Implications and future research needs are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
