Translation of the Early Achievements Intervention for Implementation in Public Pre-K Classrooms with Children with ASDTuesday, September 22, 2015
4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. ET
Efficacy for the Early Achievements (EA) intervention for toddlers with ASD was established via a comparative randomized controlled trial (RCT). Through IES funding, this intervention was translated via an iterative process for feasible, adoptable, and sustainable implementation in public school pre-K classrooms in which children with ASD are enrolled. In this webinar, the EA intervention, the translation process, and preliminary data from a pilot RCT in public school classrooms will be described. Next steps in establishing sustainability in public early childhood education settings will be discussed.
3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. ET
Traditional chemical dependency models have been less than ideal for those with cognitive impairment and this session will examine why this is, and what is needed to change that. Our participants will help us (through audio/video/stories) describe the key strategies and points discovered in working with this population.
