Early Intervention and Education for Autism Spectrum Disorder - Case Study Part II

A young boy playing dress up

Tim is now 2 years, 11 months. For the last several months, Tim has been receiving 25 hours per week of services through his local early intervention program. He receives three hours per day of a center-based developmental program for toddlers and two hours per day of ABA at home, both for five days per week.

Speech-language therapy is included at his center-based program. In anticipation of his third birthday, he was evaluated by special education staff at his local school system to determine his eligibility for special education services.

His parents will be attending their first individualized education plan (IEP) meeting next week. They are wondering what to expect.
