The Learning Style Profile© (LSP) for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (Rydell, 2012) is a research-guided intervention approach that identifies 10 ASD learning style components and focuses on moving young children with ASD from learning style weaknesses to learning style strengths in order to build increased and independent capacities in social and communication development.
No, the LSP was designed to be used in conjunction with any intervention program. The LSP helps clinicians keep the big picture in mind (Independent Thinking vs. Prompt Dependency) during the therapeutic process.
As was mentioned above, the LSP provides a roadmap that guides educators & therapists throughout the intervention process to ensure children with ASD become independent thinkers in their communities.
Yes, Northern Speech Services has a continuing education course that explains how to set up the therapeutic environment for each of the 10 Learning Style Profile© components.
