Putting together an appropriate battery to assess infants and toddlers with suspected Autism Spectrum Disorders can be challenging. Early intervention for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders leads to better outcomes. Good assessment data helps to promote effective intervention. During this session we will review some of the best practices as you consider which types of measures could be used to answer specific referral questions.
