ACT - Autism Community Training
This 30 hour course, taught by the experienced and engaging Dr. Ken Cole, with a small group of participants, reflects evidence-based practice in teaching students with autism. Instruction includes pre-readings, practical hands-on training through instructor demonstration and coaching. In addition, course participants complete applied exercises in the key elements of teaching and supporting students with autism.
The course structure involves pre-readings and class discussions, in addition to ongoing opportunities for the participant to apply concepts through active participation with fellow students.
This course is a requirement for teaching assistants in many school districts and is open to community professionals and parents. These well respected POPARD courses are rarely offered outside school districts. Register early to avoid disappointment.
