Transitioning to Adulthood

 

There is considerable discussion today about the importance of evidence- based practice when working with individuals with ASD. However, the great majority of that discussion focuses around young children with little attention paid to adolescents or adults. This talk will provide an overview of evidence-based practice with adolescents and adults and the challenges related to its effective design, implementation, and oversight. Particular emphasis will be placed on the importance of defining and measuring outcomes in terms much broader than the acquisition of individual skills. *Participant complaints regarding this or any other BACB CE event requirements violations must first be directed, in writing, to the Relias Learning ACE Coordinator, Rhonda Davin, PhD. Please contact Dr. Davin via email: ACECoordinator@reliaslearning.com. The ACE Coordinator will make every reasonable attempt to resolve participant complaints; however, should the ACE Coordinator be unable to resolve the complaint, the complainant may file a formal complaint directly with the BACB.
