Autism Conference 2008
THE IMPERATIVE OF EARLY INTERVENTION IN AUTISM:
Dr. Vincent Carbone, Ed.D., BCBA
“The Benefits of a Language-Based Approach in Programs for Teaching Children with Autism”
Dr. Catherine Lord, Ph.D.
The pressure is on to identify children with ASD younger and younger in order to begin intervention and try to maximize development during early years in order to produce a "scaffolding effect" of improvements. Yet there are many concerns about the stability of very early diagnoses, the effects on families of labeling children at very early ages and the most appropriate interventions for such young children. The presentation will address these issues and present a new instrument, the Toddler Module of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, discussing its strengths and weaknesses, as well as several new interventions intended for very young children and their families.
