Each year, AARC invites a nationally recognized speaker to share their message in at least two rural Alaskan locations. In 2019, AARC is excited to welcome Dr. Brenda Smith Myles to Alaska! This year, we are also thrilled to announce that each of her presentations will be available to all Alaskans via live, interactive video-stream online via BlueJeans!
Three United States-based organizations, the National Autism Center (NAC), the National Professional Development Center for Autism (NPDC), and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), have identified evidence-based practices for autistic children and youth. This session will introduce and describe these interventions and provide practical examples for application in home, school, and community. In addition, these evidence-based practices will also be matched to the autistic neurology and learning style.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
Describe evidence-based practices in autism
Identify interventions that match the evidence-based categories.
Match evidence-based strategies to the autistic neurology
