Understanding Evidence-Based Practices and Additional Resources for Supporting Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder
The prevalence of Autism is increasing and identifying areas of need for students on the Autism Spectrum can be a challenge in a school settings. In this training staff will learn how to identify the area of need and how
to pick an appropriate Evidenced Based Practice (EBP) to support students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Attendees will learn what the California Autism Professional Training and Information Network (CAPTAIN) and Autism Focused Intervention Resources and Modules (AFIRM), are and how to access their supports when implementing EBPs in your classroom or school setting.
Participants will be able to:
• Understand ASD and the impacts on learning and behavior
• Define and describe the EBPs for Autism and tell others where to find more information on EBPs
• Use the CAPTAIN and NPDC-ASD resources as they relate to implementation of EBPs in your classroom or school setting
This is a 2 hour training.
Site-Based Trainings may be requested via your SELPA Program Specialist with a minimum of 10 participants at your school site. Should you wish to have a Site-Based Training, but do not have 10 participants, the SELPA may be able to pair your LEA’s needs with other local SELPA Partners in order to offer the training at your site.
