Early intervention services for children with autism in public school settings include an array of services across school districts, counties, and states. Programs addressing the needs of students range from full-inclusion in community preschools with minimal specialized support to highly structured classroom-based intensive interventions. A framework of applied behavior analysis principles is often used within the continuum of services. What are the program components that promote effective and efficient delivery of services and the best outcomes for children with autism? This session will describe the continuum of early intervention services provided by one public education agency for preschool age children with autism. The focus of this session will be on quality classroom programs built upon evidence-based practices. Video and photo examples of program components as well as resources, such as program forms and data sheets, will be provided.
