Research

Practitioners and researchers often use slightly different language when it comes to autism therapy. While therapists and teachers emphasize the need for individual approach and the importance of good clinical and educational practices, researchers focus mainly on the reliability of the systematically analysed data. These two perspectives are joined in Evidence-Based Practise (EBP).

Practitioners and researchers often use slightly different language when it comes to autism therapy. While therapists and teachers emphasize the need for individual approach and the importance of good clinical and educational practices, researchers focus mainly on the reliability of the systematically analysed data. These two perspectives are joined in Evidence-Based Practise (EBP).

Registration is now closed.

About the symposium

The aim of the symposium is to present contemporary overview of interventions available for children and adolescents with autism, combining the clinical and the research realms.

The symposium will focus on the key elements of evidence-based interventions:

  • Developing good clinical and educational practices directed at people with autism
  • Defining evidence based therapeutic techniques and ASD risk assessment methods
  • Examining perspectives of persons in the environment of the child with autism to determine the needs and priorities of the child and their family.

The first part of the Symposium (Interventions) will focus on the implementation of the science-based therapeutic interventions in the United States, Sweden and Poland. How to provide therapists and teachers with the most up to date knowledge? How to ensure that children receive high-quality services regardless of the therapeutic philosophy adopted by a particular organization? How to implement evidence-based techniques in different areas of ASD intervention (developmental, educational, health-related)? Answers to these questions will be the core of the part of the meeting held in English.

Program

Part 1 of the symposium (9:30 am to 12:30 pm) will be held in Polish and in English simultaneously.
The rest of the event will be conducted in Polish only.
