Early interventions for autism are increasingly focused on early core developmental abilities. These include a focus on shared attention and affect, joint attention and social motivation to interact with others. Strong theoretical and empirical evidence documents how early learning is facilitated by interactions with others. In this presentation, Dr. Kasari will address targeted interventions for these important core developmental abilities, and how early interventions generate change in the short term and create a platform for later developmental growth. She will also illustrate these changes through our intervention research with toddlers, preschoolers, and school aged children with a particular focus on underserved, under-resourced children with ASD and their families.
