Course Description
This course introduces the SCERTS framework, its components, and guiding principles. The SCERTS Model is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary educational approach designed for autistic individuals. This model is not exclusive of other treatment approaches and educational methodologies, but rather provides a framework for those who are seeking guidelines for implementing a comprehensive educational plan that is based on our knowledge of the core developmental challenges faced by children with ASD, family-centered care, and our knowledge of the recommended tenets of educational programming.

Learning Objectives
1. Describe essential components of a comprehensive educational program for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

2. Describe core challenges in social-communication and emotional regulation faced by children with ASD at different stages of development.

3. Describe the SCERTS assessment process for prioritizing learning objectives for children with ASD.

4. Identify how the SCERTS curriculum-based assessment can be used to guide the development of objectives in social communication, emotional regulation, and transactional support at various developmental stages

5. Identify the interplay between social communication, emotional regulation, and transactional support essential for active engagement.
