Identification, implementation, and ongoing evaluation of scientifically supported and effective-practice methods are fundamental and crucial elements of an effective educational program for all children and youth, including learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). To be sure, there is an unambiguous link between use of interventions and supports that have empirically supported merit and positive school and post-school outcomes. This chapter examines progress in the wide-scale adoption of evidence-based methods with learners with ASD. We also offer recommendations for advancing effective-practice initiatives and discuss trends and themes connected to effective-practice use with students with ASD.
