Autism Treatment Lecture at Nova Southeastern University
New research provides compelling evidence that if Autism Spectrum Disorder is diagnosed and treated early, children can make life-changing gains. Parents are put in the difficult position of determining which Autism treatment is best for their child. With so many treatments out there, it is difficult to know which road to take. On Friday, 5/13, Dr. Sanderson gave a continuing education lecture for psychologists at Nova Southeastern University entitled, “Evidence-Based Practices for Treatment and Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder in Young Children.” She did a terrific job explaining best practice treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder by pointing out that there are only three models with empirical evidence supporting their efficacy (Discrete Trials, Pivotal Response Treatment, and the Early Start Denver Model) and by explaining the differences between these models. Also discussed were the signs and symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder in young children, and how professionals can recognize them early using gold-standard screening and evaluation tools. She has provided similar lectures at countless institutions in the tri-county area, from preschools to universities.
