Everyday routines that occur in the child’s home and with the child’s family are not artificial. They occur and re-occur. These routines provide the framework for learning. As a child learns a routine, he or she learns many different skills that are embedded in that routine. PowerPoint

ASD-4-EI: What Early Interventionists Should Know

10/22/2014

Contributor(s):
Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD)

(ECI cannot issue a certificate for this training)
Early interventionists are increasingly likely to encounter a child under age 3 who (a) has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), (b) is in the process of being diagnosed, or (c) is showing red-flag behaviors that are of concern to the family and/or professionals. This module describes what early interventionists need to know from beginning to end: from initial concerns and red flags through the diagnostic process, to understanding what evidence-based early intervention could and should look like.

Naturalistic Intervention with Toddlers with ASD

(ECI cannot issue a certificate for this training)
Naturalistic Intervention is a collection of practices including environmental arrangement, interaction techniques, and strategies based on applied behavior analysis (ABA) principles, such as modeling and time delay. These practices are designed to help toddlers develop skills in the areas of communication (both prelinguistic and linguistic) and social development by responding to the toddler in ways that are naturally reinforcing, appropriate to the interaction, and build up to more elaborate behaviors. By definition, naturalistic intervention is used across settings and within routines and activities that occur throughout the day by anyone trained in the intervention processes. None
