Event description
Using the SCERTS framework to guide priorities for children with Autism - Introduction, Implementation, and Assessment with Emily Rubin

About this Event

This course is suitable for multidisciplinary team members, educational professionals, family members and anyone with an interest in autism practice.

Day 1 of this course will introduce the SCERTS model, a comprehensive, multidisciplinary educational approach designed for autistic children. This model is not exclusive of other treatment approaches and educational methodologies, but rather provides a framework for those who are seeking guidelines for implementing a comprehensive educational plan that is based on our knowledge of the core developmental challenges faced by children with ASD, family-centered care, and our knowledge of the recommended tenets of educational programming. The model was designed to provide guidelines for helping children progress through the stages of becoming a competent social communicator. It was also designed to provide families and educational teams with the help they may need to feel successful in supporting the child. Participants of this course will learn how to determine meaningful, purposeful, and motivating goals and strategies based on a child’s developmental stage, functional needs, and family priorities.

Day 2 and 3 of this course will move toward a more advanced discussion of the use of the SCERTS assessment process to determine developmentally sensible and functional goals, to determine appropriate evidence-based supports, and to monitor progress over time in meaningful, functional contexts. Day 2 will begin with the essential priorities for applying the SCERTS assessment in program development, namely writing goals and determining supports (i.e., educational planning). On Day 3, the formal assessment will be introduced with an emphasis on how to use this tool to determine a child’s stage of language acquisition, establish a profile of strengths and areas of need in those areas most impacted by the core challenges of autism and monitor progress over time.
