To develop, learn, and have meaningful relationships with other people, toddlers with autism need a core set of foundation skills on which to build. The Learning to Learn Program is designed for early intervention providers to use with families and caregivers. It includes assessment checklists, suggested goals and outcomes, along with specific intervention strategies for facilitating development of five core foundation skills including 1) nonverbal imitation, 2) joint attention, 3) sensory processing and self-regulation, 4) purposeful play, and 5) early language development. Young children with autism and other neurodevelopmental delays often struggle with acquisition of the these critical skills. When these foundation skills are absent or inconsistently displayed, it is difficult for struggling learners to make functional gains. This program offers a roadmap for helping young children with autism build foundation skills through playful interactions with parents and caregivers.
