Translating research to practice in prelinguistic communication
Keen, D., Paynter, J., Trembath, D., & Simpson, K.
ABSTRACT: Implementation of evidence-based intervention practices into every day settings in the community has been a serious challenge for researchers in the field of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). There is general agreement that a gap exists between research and practice and that this must be broached if we are to achieve the best possible outcomes for individuals with ASD. This gap is all too evident in the sub-group of prelinguistic communicators with ASD who may be even more likely to receive experimental approaches as they fail to respond to interventions that have proven effective for other sub-groups of children.
