About the Event
This 30 hour course has been developed by the Provincial Outreach Program for Autism and Related Disorders (POPARD) for B.C. educational professionals and paraprofessionals. It reflects current research and evidence-based practice in teaching students with ASD. In addition, research-based methods of effective adult instruction are utilized. These include pre-reading, practical hands-on activities, demonstration, coaching and application exercises as well as a variety of ways of evaluating participant learning.
This course is a requirement for teaching assistants in many school districts and is open to community professionals and parents.

ACT’s live events are self-supporting through registration fees and sponsorship; we do not receive government funding. ACT fundraises to provide bursaries for low-income participants. We prioritize family members and autistic adults for bursaries which are given in the form of lower registration fees. ACT only provides bursaries prior to registration for those who want to join our online audience. Learn more about how to register using the ACT event bursary program. You are welcome to call or email ACT's office (email@example.com) for more information. ACT provided over $11,000 in bursaries in 2019 and gratefully accepts donations to our bursary fund to allow us to provide a greater level of support. Donate to our bursary fund.
Parents who receive Autism Funding may use 20% of the
total for equipment, books, training and travel costs.
ACT's live events are considered eligible expenses by
the Autism Funding Branch. Please pay when you register; the Autism Funding Branch will reimburse parents after the event.
