Presented by Dr. Meghan Barlow, Ph.D. and Dr. Heather Dukes-Murray, Ph.D., this intensive and knowledge-rich seminar goes beyond the basics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) assessment and intervention. We will review in-depth information to help psychologists, therapists, counselors, educators, administrators, speech language pathologists, and other intervention providers better understand the autism diagnostic process, identify symptoms in commonly missed populations, and better understand how ASD impacts academics as well as how it can result in functional impairment in the school and other settings.

Practical, targeted intervention strategies to help children and adolescents with ASD make progress in social skills, executive functioning, emotion regulation, anxiety, and motivation are heavily interwoven throughout the day. You will leave empowered with tools to help your clients/students with ASD make meaningful progress.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify common factors contributing to misdiagnosis and be able to provide information about how individuals may present differently with ASD.
  • Understand current ASD measures and methods of assessment.
  • Identify how autism impacts learning, information processing, and attention in a practical, applicable manner.
  • Identify interventions and accommodations to help students with ASD learn and thrive in the classroom.
  • Utilize specific interventions to assist individuals with ASD in decreasing anxiety.
  • Utilize specific interventions to assist individuals with ASD in improving executive functioning, social skills, and emotion regulation.
