Open Now: MyACE Dashboard

VCU-ACE is excited to announce the release of the MyACE Dashboard! The MyACE Dashboard is a new way to access training opportunities and track your professional development activities. This customizable portal is designed to guide you through a variety of different training topics. The Dashboard makes finding the right training at the right time that much easier!

As you complete activities, you’ll earn badges that assist with tracking progress and that can be exchanged for recertification points. Because the Dashboard allows you to individualize activities based on your needs, how you navigate the MyACE modules is completely up to you! Current badges include topics such as: Overview of Autism, Communication, Behavior, Comprehensive Autism Planning (CAPS), Prompting, and Reinforcement. Check back often as more badges will be added!

Collect all the badges or find just the right resources for you and your team!

To get started with your own MyACE Dashboard, you’ll first need to create an account. Follow the link to get started today: www.vcuautismcenter.org/myace/
