[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]

There is a pressing need to close the chasm between demonstrated efficacy of interventions for youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) validated under ideal conditions and their effectiveness when implemented in community settings. With over a dozen published research studies, The Research Unit on Behavioral Interventions (RUBI) Autism Network Parent Training Program has been found to be acceptable to parents, reliably delivered by trained therapists, and effective in reducing disruptive behavior when evaluated under ideal conditions (i.e. efficacy trials). RUBI is emerging as an important component of short-term, effective treatment for children with ASD and has been expanding reach into “real-word” clinical practice. This workshop focuses on considerations and intervention modifications required to successfully transition RUBI, as studied in a clinical trial, into a viable service for community practitioners.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Compare and contrast research versus clinical implementation of RUBI
  • Identify exemplars of implementation of RUBI in a clinical setting
  • Select standardized assessment procedures that allow for patient characterization and outcomes assessment of RUBI in a clinical setting
  • Identify viable approaches to practice-related implementation considerations (e.g., billing, room lay out, incorporation of the child in session).
  • Select methods to incorporate trainees into a RUBI clinic model
