Tips for a Successful IEP Meeting

Making Informed Decisions:
Understanding and Navigating Applied Behavior Analysis

As each person responds to treatment differently, we do not endorse one treatment or program. Individuals and families should educate themselves about all options and choose what they feel is in their best interests based on their experience and available resources. To the maximum extent possible, the Autism Society believes informed decisions should be made by individuals with Autism and their caregivers in partnership with a multidisciplinary team. No single service or intervention is likely to meet the needs of every individual with Autism. Selection of a program, service, or intervention method should be based on a comprehensive assessment of the person’s abilities and interests. We believe services should be outcome-based to ensure they meet the individualized needs of the autistic person. The Autism Society’s position on any therapeutic practice is that it should promote self-determination, enhance inclusive community involvement, and result in improved quality of life.
