These presentations by leading investigators in the field will present new data characterizing the assessment and treatment practices in community-based services for children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Disruptive Behavior Disorders (DBP), and discuss how such data can improve efforts to integrate evidence-based practices into usual care.
Session Objectives: After attending, learners will be able to describe methods of assessing the use of evidence-based practices for interventions, articulate how practice-based knowledge can inform research, examine methods of translation of evidence-based practice for assessment and intervention methods.
