New Autism Consultant/Specialist Workshop, Part 2
April 22-23, 2019 at WESD from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm
The New ASD Consultant/Specialist trainings are offered to provide orientation, information, and resources on topics of interest for new autism consultants and/or specialists. It is also an opportunity to meet with colleagues in the same position throughout the state. The training is available to both regional and district autism consultants.
- Participants do not have to be “new this year”, only newer to the role of a consultant or specialist.
- Content will include information on Oregon ASD Self-Assessment and Action Plan, evidence-based practices for students with Autism, positive behavior supports, transition planning, visual supports, and effective consultation methods.
- This training is not intended to supplement or replace the coursework needed to obtain the TSPC Specialization. We highly encourage staff to obtain the TSPC Specialization offered through Western Oregon University. If you are interested in pursuing the TSPC Specialization, or to get further information on the Specialization, contact Mickey Pardew at WOU (firstname.lastname@example.org).
