Free 2010 Webinar Series

Date: Tuesday, Feb 23, 2010
Time: 2:00 pm ET / 11:00 am PT
Duration: One hour (15 mins for Q&A)

Leading researchers and autism education providers agree that children with autism need increased access to evidence-based interventions, including Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Endorsed by the U.S. Surgeon General and the American Academy of Pediatrics, ABA is the only treatment for autism that has been consistently validated by independent scientific research.

School districts are confronted by the ever-increasing needs of a growing population affected by autism spectrum disorders. Indeed, the recent CDC Study, estimating that approximately 673,000 children aged 3-21 have been diagnosed with autism nationwide, implies a huge gap between the number of children who need autism intervention and the availability of evidence-based autism services. In fact, it is estimated that less than 5,000 people worldwide are certified in ABA, making it difficult for school districts to develop and staff ABA-based program for students with autism.

Participants in this webinar will learn to:

  • Assess the needs of their district's autism program
  • Identify key components to an effective district-wide autism program
  • Leverage technology to deliver scalable and cost-effective solutions
  • Implement systems of progress monitoring and teacher accountability for students with autism
