EARLY INTERVENTION PROJECT: TRAINING SCHOOL STAFF AND PARENTS TOGETHER

Buncombe and Brunswick counties are the lucky sites for this targeted pilot program to study best practice methods in Early Intervention. The Autism Society of NC, along with Family Support Network of Brunswick County and Carolina Pediatric Therapy, is working with the two school systems to train teachers and parents to use a combination of interventions to increase joint attention and play. The experimental group will train teachers and parents to use Pivotal Response Training, Early Start Denver Model and Connie Kasari’s method of play to interact with the children. The control group will only train the teachers. Wouldn’t this be GREAT to have all across the state, in all schools?! Maybe some day…
