Vanderbilt’s Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) will provide a hands-on teacher training to certified high school teachers who directly serve students with autism. This professional development opportunity is sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Education.
HSTTT is a unique 3-day training consisting of a combination of didactic instruction, video demonstration, live demonstration, and application activities. Training topics will include characteristics of autism, and using evidence-based strategies to address academics, transition planning and vocational skills.
Participants will leave the workshop with a set of goals individualized to their education setting needs. These goals will be developed in collaboration with a TRIAD consultant, and each participant will receive a follow-up site visit approximately 4-6 weeks after completion of the training.
Participants must attend all three days to be eligible for the site visit, and must participate in a site visit in order to receive a certificate of completion.
Deadline for registration is Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, two weeks prior to Day 1 of the workshop, or until full.
