Key Components of an Effective School-Based Autism Program

NEW YORK Jan. 26, 2011 Pediatrics

With such an alarming growth in the prevalence of autism, it is no surprise that public school districts nationwide are struggling to keep pace with the complex needs of a growing autism population. Students’ needs are usually addressed through the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) process, where educators propose specific programs and services while parents advocate for what they believe is best for their children on an individual basis. Often this puts schools and parents in an adversarial relationship, missing the "big picture" and the opportunity to create a program structure of best practices that have been proven effective in supporting students with autism. a free online webinar, "Key Components Of An Effective School-Based Autism Program," Wednesday, Feb. 2 at 1p EST / 12p CST Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 3p EST / 2p CST Jamie Pagliaro

The webinar will identify seven key components that research and practitioners agree are necessary to effectively support students with autism. It will provide a framework for district leaders to allocate resources, for teachers to coordinate direct services, and for parents to advocate, in a collaborative effort to improve supports for students on the autism spectrum.

Rethink Autism’s unique web-based program provides teachers with a comprehensive evidence-based curriculum through 1200+ video-based teaching steps, parent and staff training modules, an assessment tool, and progress tracking features.
