TRIAD Autism Workshop for General Education Teachers (West TN)

Tuesday, October 12-Wednesday, October 13, 2010

The Department of Education, Division of Special Education, in collaboration with the Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, are pleased to announce a new 2-day focused workshop designed specifically for general education teachers. This free workshop will combine lecture, small group discussion, and the development of classroom materials to accomplish the following outcomes:

  • Identify the characteristics of autism spectrum disorders and how these characteristics impact teaching and learning
  • Identify evidence-based intervention strategies to address the unique learning needs of students with ASD
  • Develop a plan to integrate these evidence-based intervention strategies into the classroom and school settings

Each 2-day regional workshop will be able to accommodate thirty (30) general education classroom teachers. Admission will be by application only. Please do not apply if you are a special educator, administrator, or paraprofessional.

To register for the workshop, please contact Linda Copas with the Tennessee Department of Education via email or (615) 741-7790.
