Online Professional Learning and Current Research
In recent years, professional organizations and educational collaborations have sought to share information on ASD and effective interventions for anybody who may be interested by developing online tutorials and professional development opportunities. These web-based modules and presentations are available anywhere, anytime, and are free-of-charge.
Over the past several years there has been a great deal of discussion about “evidence-based practices” for individuals with ASD and which intervention approaches have empirical support of effectiveness. Comprehensive reviews of the research have been conducted by a number of organizations, and new research continues to emerge.
