Teaching Children With Autism
Free Awareness Seminar
Basic propositions about the nature of autism have not changed but fortunately, intervention services have. Educational treatment remains for most children with autism the most effective approach available. There is virtually no disagreement about the value of early educational interventions for children with autism. However, there is no consensus among professionals on a specific one.
The purpose of this seminar is to develop familiarity with a variety of topics that relate to the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD’s). Issues related to available approaches in teaching children with autism include ABA\VB. Developmental Model: RDI, DIR & Floortime; Structured Teaching: TEACCH; speech and language therapy; occupational therapy and sensory Integrations exercises; and social skills therapy have some effectiveness in children with autism. However, intensive ABA treatment has demonstrated effectiveness in enhancing global functioning in preschool children, and it is well established for improving the intellectual performance of young children with autism.
