About the event: This 30 hour course has recently been revised to reflect current research and evidence-based practice in teaching students with ASD. 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 ASD.

Expectations: the course structure involves pre-readings and class discussions, in addition to ongoing opportunities for the participant to apply concepts through active participation.
