Autism Navigator for Early Intervention Providers at the Knowledge and Skills level is a 30-hour online self-guided professional development course that uses interactive slides with audio narration, closed captions, and extensive illustrative video clips. Course participants have links to web resources, research briefs, supporting documents to help them learn and apply the information, and documents to share with families.
This course uses an unparalleled video library with more than two-dozen different toddlers with autism and their families embedding intervention strategies and supports in the natural environment. Video clips illustrate core diagnostic features, key social communication milestones and early signs of ASD, how to gather and share information with families, evidence-based early intervention strategies and supports used by families of toddlers with autism in everyday activities, and ways to manage challenging behavior using positive behavior support. Each video player contains sets of video clips that compare and contrast features across children, families, or contexts with commentary that recaps key points and highlights critical behaviors.
