Recently, the Child and Family Development multidisciplinary team gathered to collaborate and exchange expert information.  In April, Ashley Kies PhD LPA NCSP, a psychologist at the Midtown office, shared information from the Autism Society of North Carolina, specifically

EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES (EBP) as focused interventions that:

  • Produce specific behavioral and developmental outcomes for a person 
  • Have been demonstrated as effective in applied research literature
  • Can be successfully implemented in educational settings

EVALUATING INTERVENTION OPTIONS with probing questions such as: 

  • What is the purpose of the treatment?
  • How will the child benefit?
  • How will I know it has worked for my child?

SELECTING AND IMPLEMENTING AN EBP:

  • Select and plan for EBP
  • Implement with fidelity
  • Assess progress

Dr. Kies shared several websites for professionals, parents and people with autism with her occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy and psychology colleagues at both the Pineville and Charlotte/ Midtown offices, including:
