SPEAKER:Dr Angelika Anderson, Senior Lecturer at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia is back in Belfast for a short workshop.
Dr Anderson about her work: "I think the work we are doing with adults in a working environment is really exciting and brings up a range of issues that make interesting workshop / discussion issues. Essentially we trialled three strategies:
1. Antecendent/preventative package, including video priming,
2. Modeling procedures (comparing video and in vivo modeling) in teaching job specific skills, and
3. Self-management procedures to increase rates of productivity.
The project is situated in the context of a not for profit organisation within the community. Other data on interventions for adults with ASD make for an interesting discussion about a focus on antecedent interventions (i.e., inclusive paradigm) versus solely focusing on addressing skill deficits (i.e., medical paradigm). I think both are needed, just as you address health issues and provide individual therapies for individuals in wheelchairs as well as wheelchair ramps.' Dr Anderson previously presented at the CBA/QUART conference in 2011.
