In recent years service providers and educators have become more aware of the characteristics and behaviors associated with individuals identified with an autism spectrum disorder and more familiar with the underlying causes of these behavioral challenges. However, many parents and professionals continue to struggle to identify and implement effective strategies to address the areas of concern or to teach new skills. This workshop will present a framework that assists in the selection and organization of interventions to create an individualized and comprehensive plan to support an individual. Participants will explore many strategies and interventions that can be included in each area of the framework. Examples used throughout the workshop will include those that can be used with children, youth or adults. Examples will include individuals of various ages in order to assist participants to understand how to create or modify a strategy for the appropriate age group. Supports and interventions that are highlighted during the presentation will be appropriate for those with classic and high-functioning autism when individualized or adapted for the person and the environment. The goal of this workshop is to introduce participants to a method of selecting, organizing and prioritizing interventions, as well as how to modify strategies to be more effective for the individual and environment in which they may live, work or learn.
