Educating children with autism is a team game. The goal: improved quality of life now and maximal independence in the future. The clock is running and everyone involved—school, teachers, family members, and especially the child—has limited resources to contribute. The most pragmatic and ethical way forward entails targeting only those learning outcomes most likely to yield optimal benefit to the child. This presentation will explore the meaning of meaningful behavior change and suggest actions educators and parents can take to ensure their hard work translates into higher quality of life for the children they serve.
