Dr. David Trembath, a visiting scholar from Griffith University in Australia, will present, “Examining Early Intervention Outcomes for Children with Autism.”
Abstract: Despite the development of a range of evidence based interventions for children with autism, substantial individual variability in outcomes is common. In this seminar, methods for examining these differences and findings from recent studies involving children receiving comprehensive early intervention programs in Australia will be presented and discussed. Research examining Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) intervention outcomes for children on the autism spectrum often points to overall positive group effects but substantial individual differences. In this presentation, approaches to understanding and addressing these differences will be examined, with reference to the research literature and preliminary findings from current studies.
