In this course students will build upon concepts previously learned in ABA principles and Autism courses to gain a better understanding of how to design programming for young children with ASD. Students will be introduced to a range of commonly used assessment tools and strategies for effective assessment. This will be followed by discussion of individual child goal-setting. Students will be expected to choose effective short-term and long-term goals for young children receiving home or clinic-based intervention. Finally, students will spend several classes learning more about how to break down and effectively teach complex skills including language, social, play and adaptive daily living skills.
