Problem Solving and Finding Solutions for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Model Individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) typically have higher support needs for life skills, social skills and mental health issues than most other populations and the amount of support needed likely will depend on the severity of the disorder and specific difficulties. In order to ensure high quality services for ASD individuals, a well-trained staff is essential for promoting life skills and decreasing mental health issues. The efficacy of essential personnel, as with all mental health issues, is hampered by the lack of formal and informal education and training, preparation and experience when working with ASD individuals. Not only is there a dearth of studies that present valid and reliable specific training for the treatment of ASD individuals, the few studies that do exist only offer modest information about effective strategies to intervene. Most do, however, indicate the need for understanding issues related to autism spectrum disorders and improving staff training with regard to the ASD population [1].
Thus, one of the major problems for assisting individuals with an ASD, is the lack of adequate training and understanding on the part of staff members. Some preparatory training for teachers, administrators, and counsellors/therapists should address the unique issues of the autism population as a whole while also incorporating other areas, such as diversity, parenting issues, individuals with disabilities, and ethical treatments of diverse populations. However, most training programs offer limited exposure and no in-depth preparation for staff member to work with this unique population. At the current time there are few published studies that detail effective approaches for educators and service providers that can be applied to the autism spectrum disorder population.The number of individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is on the rise. Research indicates the prevalence of ASD is 1 in 68 of all age groups and the number of children diagnosed with an ASD is even higher. In the United States the prevalence may be as high as 2 % of the population (Center for Disease Control, 2015) [2]. At the current time no clear information or reason for the rise in ASD diagnosis has been isolated. Whether this trend will continue is unknown.
