- Mon 12 Apr 15:30: Personalizing interventions in autism: Research considerations that can inform practice
A surge in published research reviews of interventions in ASD raises questions about motivating factors on the one hand, and the strength of the science on the other. One obvious truth is that a single intervention is not effective for all individuals with ASD ; another that most intervention trials fail to represent the entire spectrum of autism raising questions about our current evidence base. As we move the field of intervention science in ASD forward, we must tackle a number of research issues in order to inform both research and clinical practice. This talk will address personalizing interventions for individuals with ASD in different contexts.
