Latest Findings on Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder and that Children receiving Developmental Monitoring and Developmental Screening Together are more likely to receive Early Intervention

Daisy Christensen, Epidemiologist at NCBDDD at CDC, will present on the recent "Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder Among Children Aged 8 Years - Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network, 11 Sites, United States, 2014" data release. The latest findings from the ADDM Network provide evidence that the prevalence of ASD is higher than previously reported estimates and continues to vary among certain racial/ethnic groups and communities. With prevalence of ASD ranging from 13.1 to 29.3 per 1,000 children aged 8 years in different communities throughout the United States, the need for behavioral, educational, residential, and occupational services remains high, as does the need for increased research on both genetic and nongenetic risk factors for ASD. During the latter half of the webinar, Rebecca Wolf, Team Lead, "Learn the Signs. Act Early." at CDC, and Brian Barger, Director of Research and Evaluation at GSU's UCEDD, will present on the study and findings of, "Better Together: Developmental Screening and Monitoring Best Identify Children who need Early Intervention".

Cross-disciplinary Competencies: Serving the whole child

Traditionally, professionals have been trained in a single discipline usually corresponds to an area of development Additionally, most disciplines are trained to be able to offer services and intervene across a broad age range: the lifespan of an individual. Upon completion of a program of study in a discipline, an individual is then licensed in a discipline to provide services to persons across the lifespan. These training and licensing practices create two challenges to providing effective early childhood intervention to infants and young children and their families: 1) interventions may be focused to specific areas of development by discipline specific interventionists (e.g. an occupational therapist provides specific motor intervention and does not incorporate any other areas of development into her therapy/intervention); and 2) interventions may be provided by a person who does not have any specific experience or competence in infancy or early childhood
