ASD Nest Model
Quantity in Basket: None
By Shirley Cohen, PhD. and Lauren Hough, MsEd. ©2012. This well-researched and evidence-based program was formulated in response to the severe shortage of educational programs designed for higher functioning school-age children with ASD, which often leads to inappropriate placement, and a lack of supports...all of which inevitably results in poor educational experiences.
The program uses a positive behavior support approach and incorporates strategies that address areas of difficulties common in children with ASD, specifically sensory functioning, social relatedness, self-regulation, managing anxiety, and selective cognitive problems. This program helps children function comfortably and successfully in mainstream settings in their schools and communities, whenever feasible, with decreased need for professional support. For Ages 4 to 10 years old. (Softcover; 23 pages.)
