Community Autism Intervention

Abstract: The Community Autism Intervention Program’s Preschool Demonstration Program at Brewer-Porch Children’s Center of the University of Alabama employs a holistic, eclectic approach to comprehensive treatment. This unique program employs the use of positive, research-based interventions and best practices that are essential in meeting the needs of children with a medical diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Steadily increasing prevalence rates in the Autism population necessitate the need for services. The program follows the research illustrating that the most intensive services at the youngest age possible will assist the child’s progress and encourage independence at an earlier age. This paper outlines the various interventions implemented to reach each individual served. Multiple interventions provided by an interdisciplinary team aim at similar outcomes and increased success rates. The attached case study supplements this paper by depicting the potential for increased progress and independence.
