This video presentation is not meant to be all encompassing and does not include every valid practice for supporting and teaching individuals with ASD. In fact, there are many strategies and instructional techniques that are clearly beneficial for children and adolescents on the spectrum. This video was produced to help you provide a basic level support for children in your classroom and in your home. As we end this video we would like to leave you with one important thought:
Many people with ASD are contributing members of society. People with ASD can learn and progress, enjoy relationships with their family and friends, live independently or with limited support, and they can work meaningful jobs and participate in community activities. Providing early and intensive interventions using evidence-based practices will ensure that individuals with autism spectrum disorders can reach their fullest potential.
