Description

Description

The proposed project and the resulting product will directly benefit individuals who provide behavioral intervention services to children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities. The project has three major objectives: (1) to develop curriculum materials that can be used for web-based instruction, (2) to develop a commercially viable software prototype, and (3) to evaluate the resulting program to determine the usability of the software and the effectiveness of the curriculum in teaching practitioner skills to parents, family members, paraprofessionals, and aides who require more basic-level training in order to carry out specific evidence-based behavioral intervention protocols.
