CTLE Activities

Teacher and Paraprofessional Training Program

QSAC has developed an extensive training series to teach New York City and Long Island educators how to implement the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) in their classrooms. QSAC is a New York State approved sponsor of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) and the lectures in this program are eligible for CTLE credits. This program leverages our broad clinical background and history of service to the autism community to increase educators’ knowledge of valuable tools and methods they can use to best support their students. Our training staff include Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) who devote their careers to applied behavior analysis and work with individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). 

The program offers both lecture-based and in-classroom feedback training. In addition, we are able to offer a training that is appropriate for parents and family members. These trainings seek to create learning environments that support students with an ASD in achieving their full potential. 

Training Topics

An initial programmatic observation is required to assess which trainings would be most appropriate for the participating school. In addition, “Introduction to Applied Behavior Analysis” is a required training prior to any electives being scheduled. 

  • Introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) 
  • Building Rapport and Conducting Preference Assessments 
  • Systems of Reinforcement

All trainings include a series of discussions and lectures to explore the practical applications, concepts, and components of Applied Behavior Analysis and how to best leverage these tools in the classroom.
