Beverly, Brenda L.; Mathews, L. Amanda – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2021
Many speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are underprepared to serve children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), despite a growing need and increased expectation for ASD expertise. To understand this practice gap, 60 SLPs and 26 parents of children with ASDs were surveyed regarding SLP knowledge and competency. Of concern was that only about…

Shurr, Jordan; Bouck, Emily C.; Bassette, Laura; Park, Jiyoon – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2021
Basic mathematic skills at the early age are foundational for later learning. Many students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) struggle in academic learning without sufficient support. Research in the area of concrete manipulatives--tangible representations of abstract concepts--has been found effective. In addition, promising research has…

Radley, Keith C.; Helbig, Kate A.; Schrieber, Stefanie R.; Ware, Mary E.; Dart, Evan H. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2021
A substantial number of multicomponent interventions have been developed to address social functioning in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). For multicomponent interventions, identifying critical elements of the intervention related to behavior change is critical and may potentially improve the social validity of interventions. Such…

The use of mobile devices has become a major medium of leisure engagement for the general population. However, individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) experience disparities in technology access, which may limit their engagement in mobile device-based leisure. Little research has examined procedures for teaching individuals with ID to…

Mariage, Troy V.; Englert, Carol Sue; Plavnick, Joshua B. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2021
Many individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can effectively decode and read words fluently, but have significantly below-average understanding of text. Following written directions may hold unique potential as it requires a reader to convert a written text into a goal-directed and observable performance. The present data-based case study…

Kelly, M. P.; Reed, P. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2021
"Stimulus over-selectivity" describes a phenomenon in which an individual responds only to a subset of the stimuli present in the environment and, thus, may restrict learning. This study aimed to develop understanding of the nature and role of over-selectivity in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by analyzing the relationship of…

Ratliff-Black, Marie; Therrien, William – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2021
Parent-mediated interventions (PMIs) are commonly used with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and their effectiveness for young children has been documented. However, no reviews have examined the use of PMIs with older children with ASD. Therefore, the purpose of this review is to investigate the state of the literature regarding PMIs…
