Feedback form is now closed.
Naturalistic Developmental Behavioral Interventions (NDBI) are commonly thought of as applying to young children with ASD and their families. The use of NBDI is going beyond early intervention and can be used successfully for school-aged youth and adults. Intervention targeted with NDBI during early childhood does not have to end once a child leaves early intervention. This presentation will provide an overview of NBDI and how the targets of early intervention can also be targeted with school-aged youth and adults during naturally occurring activities and routines.

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to describe the tenants of Naturalistic Developmental Behavioral Interventions and how they differ from traditional treatment for ASD.
2. Participants will be able to describe how to extend treatment first targeted in early childhood to apply to school-aged and adults with ASD.
3. Participants will be able to identify and target goals for school-aged and adult individuals with ASD into ongoing activities and routines.
