Autism Navigator JumpStart to Coaching in Everyday Activities


Autism Navigator JumpStart to Coaching in Everyday Activities is a self-paced course with 20 hours of online content that uses interactive slides with audio narration, closed captions, and illustrative video clips. This is an abridged or “lite” version of our Autism Navigator for Early Intervention Providers – Knowledge and Skills course. Also included are links to web resources, research briefs, supporting documents to support learning and application of the information, and documents to share with families. Autism Navigator courses use an unparalleled video library with more than two dozen different toddlers with autism and their families embedding intervention strategies and supports in their natural environment. The 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 commentary that recaps key points and highlights critical behaviors. Download full course brochure.
