AUT 574 - Evidence-Based Practice

Autism is a fad magnet. Pseudoscientific and anti-scientific treatments abound, and claims of effectiveness are often made with no regard to empirical evidence. In this context, it is imperative that professionals understand the state of evidence for different interventions, and develop skills to evaluate claims. Students will learn the criteria for what constitutes effective intervention. Students will learn the process for finding evidence and for discriminating baseless claims from true scientific evidence. Finally, students will rate the existing evidence for commonly applied treatments.
