Early Intervention Support & Services

The ASCV recognizes the importance of early intervention and support for young children across the autism spectrum. Because each child has different needs and abilities, the ASCV supports an individualized approach that addresses the core characteristics of autism spectrum disorders (e.g., communication, social, sensory, academic difficulties) and matches the family’s preferences and needs. The ASCV encourages applied research to identify the interventions and approaches that are most effective for all children with autism spectrum disorder. We also encourage the use of these practices for each child with autism spectrum disorder, regardless of geographic location.
