Collaboration is a critical component of interdisciplinary team treatment, and is mandated by the complex needs of individuals with ASD. For all team members, collaboration presents several common challenges. Working with individuals from other disciplines involves addressing differences in worldview, in the definition of evidence, and in the concept of evidence-based practice. The successful navigation of these challenges leads to more effective team processes and improved outcomes for clients. Flexibility is needed when dealing with other disciplines. Understanding differences of perspective and treatment requires a functional assessment of those positions, which will suggest ways that team members can maximize collaborative efforts and maximize client success. Sample dilemmas and helpful resources will be reviewed.
