In this assignment, you will explore ONE evidence-based practice of your choice from the 27 practices identified by the NPDC (Wong et al., 2015). You can access the site via the link below:
Evidence-Based Practices for working with students with ASD( https://autismpdc.fpg.unc.edu/evidence-based-practices)
Imagine that the school/early childhood setting at which you have begun to teach is about to undertake a peer-led professional development series on evidence-based practice (EBP) when working with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Staff members have been asked to select one EBP from a list of twenty-seven identified practices and present an informative paper to their peers.
As well as to provide information on the EBP, the goal will be to communicate to your colleagues the importance of using EBPs in educational practice, how your specific EBP works to support the development of students with ASD, and provide examples of individual strategies and approaches that could be employed in an educational context.
The use of headings is optional. However, your essay should follow a logical structure, including an introduction, a body, a conclusion, and a list of references. Given the word limit, it will be important that you are able to effectively synthesise the relevant information and ideas to provide informative information that a colleague could utilise to gain a greater understanding of EBPs in education. It is required to use current literature (publications available through the Dixon Library) to justify any instructional recommendations you will make.
• Throughout your assignment, you need to use at least five peer-reviewed references, excluding the textbook.
• Ensure you have edited your work so that there are no typing, spelling or grammatical errors. Make sure your computer is set to English rather than US spelling!
• Check that you have used correct APA referencing conventions (APA 6th).
• Please note, extensive checks for plagiarism will take place on all submitted pieces of work.
Information about this assignment will be covered in Topics 5, 6 & 7.
