This free event is part of Experts on Autism—May Institute's 2012 Parent Training Series that explores a variety of topics related to autism. While the content is especially relevant for families, we encourage educators, pediatricians, early intervention specialists, and child psychologists to also attend.
Presenter: Hanna Rue, Ph.D., BCBA-D
Director of Evidence-Based Practice, National Autism Center
Description: In this presentation, you will learn about evidence-based treatments specific to the ASD population and the importance of evidence-based practice. We will discuss the findings of the National Standards Project (NSP). The project is a systematic review of the treatment literature for individuals on the autism spectrum. The NSP resulted in the identification of treatments that were categorized as Established and Emerging Treatments. The project’s National Standards Report presents the information in a manner that is accessible to parents, and describes scientific findings that can inform treatment decisions.
Time: Presentations begin at 6:30 p.m. A typical evening will include a one-hour presentation, 30 minutes for questions and answers with the speaker, and time for networking opportunities.
