Summary: This self-study is composed of research presented at the 2017 ASHA Convention Research Symposium, “Advances in Autism Research: From Learning Mechanisms to Novel Interventions.” These journal articles – published as part of a 2018 research forum in the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research – explore the clinical implications of current research on SLPs’ work with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Specific topics include ways to personalize intervention, the interaction between language and executive functioning, how a child’s ability to interact differently with their environment impacts communication, and factors that may influence the development of shape bias, which is an important factor in vocabulary development.

Summary: This on demand webinar explores provision of SLP services for preschool and school-age children with mild to moderate impairment in their development as a result of early medical diagnoses and experiences such as premature birth, congenital anomalies, and chronic medical conditions. The speakers discuss the impact of early diagnoses or disorders on children’s future development; the developmental outcomes for these children; and strategies and tools to support these children and their families.

Summary: This webinar will answer common questions SLPs may have about working with children with social and/or emotional issues: What types of social/emotional issues (including and beyond those associated with autism spectrum disorder) can children exhibit? Do these issues impact communication development and, if so, how? How can we identify early signs, symptoms, and risk factors of social/emotional disorders in young children? What roles do SLPs play when working with children with social/emotional deficits – in language assessment/intervention and beyond? When do we treat? When do we refer?

Summary: This on demand webinar will explore strategies and tools for providing effective coaching through telepractice for caregivers of young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The speakers will discuss the benefits of telepractice for this population and provide a variety of free resources, including checklists, agendas, and a tool kit.

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: The articles in this journal self-study discuss the literacy difficulties many children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience, with direct clinical implications for literacy assessment and intervention. The articles, which apply to children across the age spectrum, are from a 2021 forum published in Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, titled “Literacy in Autism—Across the Spectrum.”

Summary: This Perspectives activity focuses on the assessment and treatment of school-age students with social language deficits. Articles focus on conversational profiles for students with autism and intervention strategies appropriate for students within each profile; the benefit of using analog tasks with toddlers through adolescents to evaluate social communication abilities and guide intervention; best practices in assessing students with social communication deficits; and 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 autism.

Summary: This session explores concrete strategies for how to implement neurodiversity-affirming supports within the current special education landscape. The session reviews strategies for rewriting commonly used terminology, incorporating autistic perspectives, and changing aspects of the school environment to benefit autistic students. It is designed for SLPs who have a basic understanding of the neurodiversity perspective and are seeking concrete strategies and next steps for implementation.

Summary: SLPs who work with middle and high schoolers with social communication challenges have much to consider. How do I make sure my practice is being culturally responsive? How do I assist with online learning formats? How do I make sure I'm implementing warranted, functional goals that respect students’ identities – and that take into account the social, emotional, and physical changes that occur during adolescence? Drawing from research, clinical, and first-person perspectives, this on demand webinar presents considerations, strategies, and sample case studies to help SLPs modernize their approaches for working with students with social communication challenges in middle and high school.

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.”
