Early Intervention for Autism: A Developmental Approach to Assessment & Treatment
December 4, 2018 @ 6:00 am - 2:00 pm MST
Early detection is critical to effective autism treatment… every moment counts.
But, at what age can you effectively identify autism and begin treatment? Do you know how to start treatment with very young children? Watch autism expert, Griffin Doyle, PhD, and get the answers to these questions and more!
Looking through a developmental lens, you will learn new and improved strategies allowing you to effectively close the gap between what you know about autism and how to begin early treatment!
Through case examples, videos and lively class discussion you’ll be guided on how you can identify key markers of autism and begin treatment with children as young as 9 months old. You’ll get specific instruction so you can effectively intervene, prevent regression and promote developmental gains in young children – even prior to formal diagnosis.
Watch and learn the necessary skills you need to:
- Ask “What is missing?” – Subtle differences in neurotypical and ASD-like children
- Identify the easy-to-miss ‘red flags’ of ASD in infants, toddlers and young children
- Develop an initial working profile of sensory-motor processing deficiencies
- Customize treatment plans for each child’s unique challenges
- Positively impact clinical outcomes with evidence-based therapeutic strategies to reduce and replace maladaptive behaviors.
