Primitive Reflexes and their role in Autism

with Erica Basso, D.C.


Every child is born with a set of reflexes called Primitive Reflexes and these reflexes should disappear by the time a child is one year old. Oftentimes, these reflexes never fully go away, which leads to delays in brain function and maturation. During this presentation Dr. Basso will describe the importance of building proper neurological function and how a strong neurological foundation plays a role in symptom improvement and recovery.

Best Practices and Outcomes in Telehealth ABA

with Kristine Rodriguez, M.A., BCBA


This presentation will explore best practice recommendations related to telehealth service delivery, including an overview of the Protocol Modification Assessment, a treatment selection matrix that was published in 2020 in response to the Covid-19 crisis. This model provides recommendations for assessing client and family readiness for telehealth services, and includes recommendations related to program modifications that may be necessary during this season. The presentation will also include an overview of client- and caregiver-focused assessments of effectiveness, so that participants can engage with their treatment teams to identify shared priorities in their care and to achieve desired outcomes.
