Description

ABOUT PROJECT IMPACT (Teaching Social Communication Skills to Children with Autism and other Developmental Delays)

Project ImPACT is an evidence-based intervention that teaches social communication to children with autism spectrum (ASD) and related disorders ages 18 months to 6 years. It uses a blend of developmental and naturalistic behavioral intervention strategies that are compatible with a variety of intervention models. It can be used as a direct intervention or a parent-mediated intervention. The parent-mediated intervention model uses effective methods for coaching parents and can be implemented in either an individual or group format.

The second edition of Project ImPACT uses updates based on new research and ongoing collaborations that have focused on making this program appropriate and accessible for a wider range of children and families and more flexible for use in a variety of practice settings. The second edition also includes an optional behavior management unit that can be used to help children experiencing significant behavioral challenges.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This 2-day workshop (October 3 and 4, 8:30AM-4:00PM) is open to providers who would like to use the Project ImPACT intervention with children with ASD and related disorders. The workshop will use a combination of lecture, role play, and small group discussion to introduce attendees to the Project ImPACT intervention techniques. Attendees will also learn how to use the Project ImPACT Second Edition curriculum to teach parents of children with autism to promote social communication during daily routines and activities. This is the first step in certification in Project ImPACT. Attendees must complete a 6-hour Online Tutorial prior to attending the workshop. You will be sent a link to the tutorial a minimum of 2 weeks before the workshop.

The cost of the 2-day Workshop with the Online Tutorial will be $600, and will include the curriculum, Teaching Social Communication to Children with Autism, Trainer and Parent manual set. A certificate of completion for 18 hours of CEU will be provided at the end of the workshop.
