Screening Tool for Autism in Toddlers (STAT)
The STAT is a 20 minute play-based screening that assesses children’s play, imitation, and communication behaviors. In addition to indicating risk for autism, the STAT can be used to develop intervention goals and activities so that treatment can begin quickly. Training workshops on the use of the STAT for screening and intervention planning are available to community providers working in medical, behavioral, mental health, educational, and other service delivery settings. Fees are based on the size of the group.
Providers not wishing to attend a training workshop can purchase an online STAT Training Tutorial and STAT Materials Kit from: stat.vueinnovations.com.
Reciprocal Imitation Training (RIT)
RIT is a play-based intervention that has been shown to improve children’s social, communication, and imitation skills. It is easy to learn and can be used by family members as well as service providers. Training workshops are available for caregivers, birth-to-three personnel, speech-language pathologists, child psychologists, day care providers, and other community providers working with young children with autism. Fees are based on the size of the group.
