NPDC Project Background
During the seven-year funding cycle, the NPDC expanded to include a number of resources that were used and revised in our work with 12 states and with individual programs, practitioners, students, and families in those states. These resources include practice briefs that contain summaries of each of the original 24 evidence-based practices (EBPs) identified in 2007, citations on the research that was used to determine their efficacy, steps and checklists for implementation of each EBP, as well as sample resources for their implementation.
Online self-paced learning modules have been developed for the EBPs and are currently located at Autism Internet Modules. Other resources developed and available on this site include coaching resources and scientific reports including the 2014 report on the recent literature review on EBPs.
We are pleased to continue providing resources that assist teachers and interventionists. Currently, we are developing a new resource, Autism Focused-Intervention Resources and Modules (AFIRM). Over the next two years, we will post new learning modules on each of the 27 EBP to the AFIRM website.
