There are many models currently utilized for educating students with autism. This presentation will focus on two of them, the Developmental, Individual Differences, Relationship-based (DIR®) model and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). These two models are often considered contradictory and opposing in nature but can be used in collaboration. The purpose of this presentation is to introduce and examine a collaborative educational model, using dual methodologies, with students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder used at Imagine Academy, which opened in September, 2005, in response to a significant lack of program options in the greater New York City area to meet the needs of students with more severe autism. This presentation will also look at the use of dual methodologies, in a home-based program, and provide guidelines for using this model in other schools, home, and community programs.
