Building Capacity to Support Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Modular Approach to Intervention


There is a large gap between research-based interventions for supporting children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and current practices imple-mented by educators to meet the needs of these children in typical school settings. Myriad reasons for this gap exist including the external validity of existing research, the complexity of ASD, and constraints on service delivery systems. Thus, a systematic approach is needed to adapt research-based in-terventions for use in typical school settings. One way to address these chal-lenges is a modular intervention framework. In this article, we describe how a modular intervention framework could be implemented in schools. A case study is used to illustrate implementation of the framework.
