The SCERTS® Model

(Prizant, Wetherby, Rubin, Rydell & Laurent, 2006)
The SCERTS® Model is a comprehensive, team-based, multidisciplinary model for enhancing abilities in Social Communication and Emotional Regulation, and implementing Transactional Supports for children and older individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and their families.  SCERTS® is not an exclusive approach, in that it provides a framework in which practices and strategies from other approaches may be integrated, such as positive behavioural supports (e.g., ABA), visual supports, sensory supports, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), and social stories.  The SCERTS® Model can be used with individuals across a wide range of ages and developmental abilities.
