Our Approach

The need for effective training for educators supporting learners with autism is great. This need is particularly critical as autism diagnosis rates continue to rise and the need for effective instructional methods is necessary to support learners with autism. In addition, with the advent of universal pre-kindergarten in New York City, early childhood educators will be in need of effective training to increase their capacity to support students with autism in their classrooms. In turn, trainings are needed that will allow teaching professionals to increase their understanding of evidence-based instructional methods such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Researchers and practitioners alike acknowledge the “pressing need” for trainings that prepare teachers to “implement evidence-based practices for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)” (Brock et. Al. 2014, p. 67).
