Summary: This Perspectives activity focuses on the assessment and treatment of school age students with social language deficits. The first article defines three different conversational profiles for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)and discusses intervention strategies appropriate for students within each of the profiles. The second article analyzes the benefit of using analog tasks (i.e., tasks that represent real-life social tasks) with toddlers through adolescents to evaluate social communication abilities and guide intervention. The third article aims to provide support for best practices in assessing students with social communication deficits, as determined by results of a survey of speech-language pathologists’ current methods and approaches. The final article examines how effective commercially available standardized tests are for evaluating the social and pragmatic language deficits of students with social pragmatic communication disorder within and separate from ASD.

Summary: This journal self-study course highlights various instructional strategies that demonstrate positive progress for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The findings and recommendations can assist SLPs in choosing strategies that produce targeted outcomes for students with ASD on their caseload.

Summary: This session describes how to work effectively within the constraints of school-based structures to improve outcomes for elementary school children on the autism spectrum. The speaker highlights key differences between a skills-based vs. supports-based approach to peer interaction in a school-based setting. In addition, she uses two case studies to walk through key elements of designing a supports-based approach—including goal-writing, activity selection, and strategy implementation. This course is a recorded session from the 2020/2021 online conference “Practical Solutions for Elementary Assessment, Treatment, and Collaboration.”

Summary: Social communication involves the integration of language processing, pragmatics, and social and emotional learning, and is a challenge for children who present with developmental language disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and social communication disorder. This session presents a bibliotherapeutic intervention approach that SLPs can implement within a plan-do-review format. This practical approach utilizes brief (~15 minutes) story sharing, story enactment, and journaling activities. The speakers present preliminary efficacy data for the intervention approach as well as provide materials and resources for its implementation. This course is a recorded session from the 2020/2021 online conference “Practical Solutions for Elementary Assessment, Treatment, and Collaboration.”

Summary: This session explores how the core deficits of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) impact their development of reading comprehension, a critical skill for success in academic, social, and vocational settings. The session—a recorded session from ASHA’s 2020 Schools Connect conference—includes discussion, demonstration, and application of assessment techniques and evidence-supported intervention strategies to facilitate reading comprehension for students with ASD.

Summary: This Perspectives (SIG 1) forum focuses on the treatment of young children with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. The first article examines the effects of parent-mediated intervention on the spoken language of young children. The second article focuses on an embedded teacher-implemented social communication intervention for preschoolers. The third article examined peer mediated augmentative and alternative communication for young minimally verbal children. The final article reported on social communication predictors of successful inclusion experiences for students with autism in an early childhood lab school.

Summary: This course—a recorded session from ASHA’s 2017 Private Practice Connect conference—reviews a service delivery model using a series of single-subject research designs to demonstrate the efficacy of telepractice compared to traditional on-site services. The presenter discusses practical strategies as well as common logistical concerns about implementing a telepractice program, including defining on-site facilitator roles and responsibilities as well as detailing what collaboration between the clinician and on-site team looks like.

Summary: This on demand webinar addresses the daunting transition from school to college, career, and community for students with disabilities. Speaker Deborah Schwind identifies and discusses factors that predict a successful transition. She discusses examples of strategies that professionals can embed in intervention sessions as well as in classrooms – beginning as early as elementary school – to increase the likelihood of a successful transition after high school graduation.

Summary: Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) need to become effective communicators with multiple communication partners and across multiple settings. This session addresses how to use evidence-based core word augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems and strategies to facilitate functional and social communication skills with preschool-age children with ASD who are either verbal or nonverbal. This course is a recorded session from the 2019/2020 online conference “Innovative Methods for Preschool Assessment, Collaboration, and Treatment.”
