Course Description:

Foundations of Evidence-Based Strategies: Transition Age

Adolescents and young adults with ASD need many critical skills as they prepare for transitioning from high school into their own, unique adult lives. This course will show you how to use evidence-based strategies to support individuals who are transition-aged and young adults through video examples at home, school, work, and in the community. It starts with an introductory module, Many Faces of Autism, which addresses the characteristics of ASD, dispels common misconceptions through the experiences and perspectives of people on the autism spectrum, and provides an overview of five simple strategies that can be used by anyone. Learners then proceed through the Transition Age course and complete eight modules which focus on a range of social-communication and behavioral intervention practices and strategies through real world videos and interviews with experts, practitioners, individuals with ASD, and their families.
