Bridging for Success in Autism: Training and Collaboration Across Community Systems (Naomi Swiezy)

Based upon basic premises of long-term practice and research, the HANDS (Helping Answer Needs by Developing Specialists) in Autism® Model Training Curriculum and Framework was developed in 2004. It was noted that professionals would benefit most from an active learning process that would allow them to better comprehend and envision the application of EBPs thus increasing the feasibility and ability to apply, maintain and generalize information to their natural settings for individuals with ASD and related disabilities. The specific curriculum content and delivery of the HANDS in Autism® Model is novel in its approach with recognition that no single intervention or strategy is equally effective with all individuals, and personnel require a “toolbox” approach to intervention. As such, the Model adheres to a comprehensive set of strategies with solid empirical support. The HANDS in Autism® Model adheres to a progressive, systematic approach to training the curriculum, framework, and process to increase the likelihood that strategies will be adopted, utilized and integrated into practice. This presentation will introduce the HANDS Model, the variety of applications, outcomes, and lessons learned as well as the resources available to support application across schools and other community practice settings and contexts.
