Developing ASD Interventions for End-Users: Examining the Process and Impacts of Training Providers in Multiple Community Service Systems

The purpose of this panel is to describe community-partnered research aimed to develop and test clinical and service interventions for delivery in community services caring for children with ASD: early intervention, education, mental health, and primary care. These studies share a common focus on developing feasible and effective provider training models to enhance child outcomes in routine care. The first presentation describes the impact of a train-the-trainer implementation model for a naturalistic developmental behavioral intervention for infants and toddlers delivered in early intervention services on agency leader training outcomes. The second presentation reports results from a large-scale effectiveness trial including teacher and students outcomes when teachers were trained to deliver a behavioral classroom intervention. The third presentation reports results from a large-scale effectiveness trial of a behavioral intervention in publicly-funded mental health services including the impacts of training therapists on therapist practice and child symptoms. The final presentation reports initial qualitative themes from a new program of research aimed to enhance primary care provider training in integrated care for children with ASD. Dr. David Mandell, will highlight themes across studies and propose recommendations for developing interventions and training models for the targeted community services caring for children with ASD.
