The National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders (NPDC) needs your help!
In 2008 the NPDC conducted an extensive review of the autism intervention literature published between 1997 and 2007 and identified 24 practices that meet criteria for evidence-based practices for children and youth with autism spectrum disorders. This identification has led to the development of a variety of resources and materials, including on-line modules and implementation checklists, that have allowed the practices to become more accessible to practitioners.
It is now time to update this literature review and we need your help as an expert reviewer.
Take the EBP Update Reviewer Training.
You can earn BCBA/BCaBA continuing education for completing the training!
We are inviting individuals with the following qualifications to participate as expert reviewers:
Reviewers must have some experience with or knowledge about ASD
Reviewers must have taken a course/training related to single-case design AND/OR group design research methods
Reviewers will commit approximately 8 hours to the project over a two month period (only 1 hour per week!) and will:
Complete a brief on-line training module (appx 1 hour)
Review an article to establish reliability (appx 1 hour)
Review up to 10 articles for the project (appx 30 minutes each)
The review process is anticipated to start in January, 2012, and end in June, 2012.
You will feel really good about contributing to our knowledge of evidence-based practice in the treatment of autism spectrum disorders and to support practitioners serving individuals with ASD (we are counting on intrinsic reinforcement here). Also, we will acknowledge you as one of the national experts who served on our review board. In addition, we will send you a copy of the report about the EBPs identified.
