Vanderbilt’s Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) will provide a two-day workshop designed specifically for School Administrators. This workshop opportunity is sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Education.
The Administrator Academy is a two-day workshop geared specifically toward building-level administrators (e.g., principals and assistant principals) for the purpose of providing information on best practices for students with autism so that administrators may evaluate programs and provide teacher, parent, and student support.
This no-cost workshop will combine didactic instruction, small group discussion, application activities, and video examples. Topics will include: characteristics of autism and how they impact learning, best practices and methodologies and how to evaluate teachers who use them, hot topics in the field of autism, IEP development and making program decisions, the use of behavior support plans, and using available resources. Professional goals will be developed by each administrator specific to their school at the end of the second day.
TASL credit will be available. Each participant must attend both full days of training to receive a certificate for the 12 hours of training and TASL credit.
Deadline for registration is Monday, Dec. 30, 2013, or until full.
