About Project ImPACT
Project ImPACT is an evidence-based intervention that teaches social communication to children with autism spectrum (ASD) and related disorders ages 18 months to 6 years. It uses a blend of developmental and naturalistic behavioral intervention strategies that are compatible with a variety of intervention models.

The parent training component uses effective methods for coaching parents and can be implemented in either an individual or group format.
