A Workshop for Parents, Professionals, and the Community
We are deeply concerned about the expectations regarding the outcomes for children diagnosed with ASD! Simply put, we feel that the expectations are too low. Children with ASD have a far more favorable prognosis than believed achievable decades ago, yet there still seems to be a lack of understanding regarding children’s’ actual potential. Children with ASD have amazing potential! The majority of children can become conversational, achieve success in school, develop meaningful friendships and most importantly, experience a high quality of life! However, achieving this requires high quality intervention with highly trained staff.
Dr. Leaf will describe the Autism Partnership Method (APM), proven to be a highly successful methodology for children with ASD. Autism Partnership has published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals demonstrating the effectiveness of APM. Tragically, the vast majority of ABA is rigid and is not individualized to meet the needs of children. Moreover, the emphasis of treatment is extremely limited, and the results often do not generalize to more natural settings. Tragically, with this more rigid application, children don’t make the progress they are capable of, ultimately compromising the lives of children and their families.
