The Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) topic supports research on the development, implementation, and evaluation of comprehensive school-based interventions (i.e., interventions that directly target, in a coordinated fashion, multiple outcomes) intended to improve outcomes for students identified with ASD. The long-term outcome of this program will be an array of comprehensive programs and assessments that have been documented to be effective for improving the developmental, cognitive, communicative, academic, social, behavioral, and functional outcomes of students identified with ASD from preschool through Grade 12.
