Social Communication Intervention for Young Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders


SLPs addressing the social communication needs of young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) must make evidence-based decisions regarding the most appropriate goals and intervention strategies for the child and family. In this program, we highlight available evidence-supporting strategies for social communication intervention with young children with ASD (ages 2–5). This program features video clips that illustrate frequently selected interventions designed to establish joint attention, communication, play, and social interaction. Finally, we emphasize the importance of evidence-based practice when making clinical decisions about appropriate interventions to achieve targeted goals, implementing the selected intervention(s), and evaluating effectiveness.
