EDS 58100 Formal and Informal Assessments and Planning for Students with Autism

The Missouri Best Practice Guidelines for Screening, Diagnosis, and Assessment for ASD will serve as the foundation for this course. Screening practices along with both medical and educational diagnostic criteria will be examined. The program planning process will emphasize a holistic approach that coordinates the program planning with individual student's assessment K-12. A home-school teaming approach will be emphasized throughout this process. Students will apply their knowledge by evaluating case study student assessment data. Additional topics will include domains in sensory, oral motor, play and communication, and classroom management systems.
