Teacher Training Program
QSAC's educator training program offers public school teachers, teaching assistants, and school building leaders in the City of New York and on Long Island access to high-impact trainings aimed at increasing their capacity to support learners with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Made possible through a generous grant from The New York Community Trust, the program offers public schools access to a series of trainings to explore instructional methods for supporting students with autism by placing an emphasis on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). In 2017, QSAC received a grant from The Long Island Community Foundation to expand the training program to school districts on Long Island.
The training program offers partner schools 20 hours of training, feedback, and technical assistance for educators and school administrators as well as corresponding parent trainings. The project seeks to create learning environments that support learners with autism in achieving their full potential.
The training program's staff work closely with building administrators to conduct a needs assessment to ascertain which workshops/courses from the program's catalog would be most appropriate for the partner school. To support the trainings, QSAC draws on more than 40-years of experience in supporting the autism community as well as its staff of accomplished behavior analysts and educators supporting children with autism.
