Webinar Description:

Efficacy for the Early Achievements (EA) intervention for toddlers with ASD was established via a comparative randomized controlled trial (RCT). Through IES funding, this intervention was translated via an iterative process for feasible, adoptable, and sustainable implementation in public school pre-K classrooms in which children with ASD are enrolled. In this webinar, the EA intervention, the translation process, and preliminary data from a pilot RCT in public school classrooms will be described. Next steps in establishing sustainability in public early childhood education settings will be discussed.

Dr. Rebecca Landa is the founder and director of the Kennedy Krieger Institute's Center for Autism and Related Disorders. She is a professor in the department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Dr. Landa is a speech-language pathologist who completed her postdoctoral training in psychiatric genetics and developmental neuropsychology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Her research and clinical care has focused on autism spectrum disorders (ASD) across the lifespan. Dr. Landa has pursued novel approaches to improving outcomes for children with ASD. She pioneered the prospective study of developmental processes in ASD using the high-risk infant sibling design. She has taken a public health approach to the early detection of ASD. As part of her early detection efforts, she developed a web-based tutorial focused on the early signs of ASD risk for the American Academy of Pediatrics and a novel web-based ASD risk screener. Her research on early learning processes in ASD has led to the development of innovative early interventions for children showing signs of risk for ASD and children diagnosed with ASD. Using an implementation science approach, Dr. Landa is studying the efficacy of these intervention approaches in community-based settings.
