New Autism Consultant/Specialist Workshop, Part 1
November 5-6, 2019 at WESD from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm
The two-day 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: Oregon Autism Assessment & Eligibility process, Evidence-based Interventions, facilitating the Oregon ASD Self-Assessment, hands-on coaching, and training general educators. Content will be presented in 2 parts.
- Part 1 of this Training will focus on Autism characteristics, Oregon Autism Assessment and Eligibility process, including Functional Communication Assessment. This workshop will cover the entire eligibility process and will review new OAR revisions. This training is open to anyone new to completing the ASD eligibility process, i.e., school psychologists, special education teachers, and speech/language therapists.
- This training is not intended to supplement or replace the coursework needed to obtain the TSPC Specialization.
- Part 2 will be held at Willamette ESD on March 3-4, 2020. This 2-day training will focus on evidence-based practices, positive behavior supports, transition planning, visual supports, and instructional coaching. Registration will be available after Part 1. Participants may attend Part 1, Part 2, or both trainings.
