Naturalistic Intervention

Let Natural Supports Work for You

This workshop will focus on Peer-mediated and Parent implemented interventions. Peer-mediated instruction and intervention can address social concerns by training peers how to initiate and respond to social interactions of learners with ASD to create positive and meaningful interactions. Many children with ASD have difficulty in their home environments with everyday routines and activities. Parents often desire to gain skills and strategies that they can implement with their children.

Learning outcomes include:

  • Describe 5 types of Peer-mediated instruction
  • Increase students' social interactions
