Learn about the newest diagnostic criteria for autism - which unlike past criteria, no longer necessitates a verbal communication component. Learn about the various therapeutic interventions such as pivotal response training, discrete trial teaching, the early start Denver model, sensory integration, ABA, and others therapeutic approaches, and how the use of electronic tablets is helpful to some autistic children in focusing and becoming more social with others.
