West Tennessee - February 6-7, 2014

Vanderbilt’s Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) will provide a two-day workshop designed specifically for School Psychologists and other professionals involved in the educational classification process (e.g., Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, teachers who play a formal role on the assessment team) in the public schools. This workshop opportunity is sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Education.

This workshop will combine didactic instruction, small group discussion, application activities, and video examples in order to identify core deficits of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in school-age students; identify characteristics and behaviors of ASD that impact assessment and function in school; become familiar with current research concerning ASD; review current information regarding available screening measures for ASD; become familiar with components of multi-disciplinary ASD assessment and how to select appropriate measures and components based on age, language level, assessment purposes, etc.; and learn about evidence-based recommendations and interventions appropriate for students diagnosed with ASD.

Deadline for registration is Wednesday, Jan. 29,or until full.
