VCU-ACE’s Online Summer Courses Met with Huge Demand!
This summer, VCU-ACE Training Division is offering two free online courses, “Foundations of Autism Spectrum Disorder” and “Educating Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.”
A new series, “Educating Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder” will begin on July 25. This course is designed to provide teachers, related service providers, paraprofessionals, administrators, families and other service providers with skills and knowledge needed to support students with an ASD in the school setting. The course will provide participants with information regarding development and implementation of the Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Participants will be provided information on educational modifications and accommodations and will learn about evidence based strategies for academic and behavioral support, including environmental modifications, visual supports, reinforcement, prompting, shaping, chaining, and task analysis.
During the month of August, the “Foundations of Autism Spectrum Disorder” will be offered for the fourth time. This four week course has been met with high demand and excellent feedback. Foundations is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the primary characteristics of ASD, secondary characteristics, sensory processing differences, comorbid disabilities, learning styles, and so on. It is an excellent for anyone interested in learning more about autism spectrum disorders, including parents, family members, educators, therapists, service providers, and medical professionals.
Registration for both courses is now full, but please check back on our Training webpage for more information or future offerings.
