You can change the life of a child with autism with training that’s proven to make a difference
Fact: We need specially trained teachers—now more than ever.
Why? Because according to latest estimates autism is affecting 1 in 45 children, up from 1 in 500 in 1999.
You can have a bigger impact than you realize.
Teaching children with autism to effectively communicate, learn new skills and to change maladaptive behavior are some of the most important steps we can take to reduce or eliminate the effects of autism. Listen to a teacher share her experiences in this video.
What kind of training do you need?
There’s no question that a skilled teacher has had plenty of training. But here’s the thing, it can be like the Wild West out there! Eclectic and nonevidence-based approaches and teaching practices abound.
When a teacher is not adequately prepared, not only does the learner suffer, but the teacher does, too. We need to establish and maintain teaching practices and strategies that make a meaningful and lifelong difference in the lives of children with autism and their families.
I design my trainings specifically to:
- Uphold high, evidence-based standards
- Directly address the characteristics of autism to positively impact learning
- Equip, support, and train teachers to do paradigm-shifting work
I provide in-depth, evidence-based training and supporting resources to help you quickly get started implementing in the classroom. I’ll show you what works, why—and how to individualize instruction for your learners.
These are the skills that a well-trained teacher should have. And because we use the science of learning, ABA, these are also skills that make us better humans.
