R&R AUTISM INTERVENTION INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP
The R&R autism intervention Introductory Workshop discusses what we do and why. It begins with a critical analysis of research and interventions to answer the question: "What is ASD?". With an understanding of the core deficits in ASD, we then discuss how these skills are developed in typical children, which in turn forms the basis for R&R stages. The workshop concludes with before and after R&R autism intervention videos and R&R research outcomes for our clients.
This workshop reviews:
• Research and clinical experience with most of the popular current autism intervention models to better understand best practice and define core deficits in ASD
• The development of referencing and social cognition in typical children and the remediation of these skills in children with ASD including the development of eye contact, gaze following, joint attention, reciprocal referencing in conversations and peer interactions through R&R autism intervention
• Social referencing as a pivotal and prerequisite skill for later developing language and peer interactions
• The development of regulation from initial adaptations to the later development of self regulation.
