          About This Event

          Summary

          Join the HANDS in Autism® Team for a week-long program that focuses on providing hands-on experience and coaching in either the HANDS simulated classroom or the natural context of a HANDS in Autism® community classroom environment. Students on the spectrum are present in both contexts, facilitating a rich learning environment for both student and adult learners. While the program includes traditional instructional methods such as lectures and discussion, the emphasis of training is building increased knowledge and skill of the process of making appropriate programming decisions for each student, classroom, and intervention team through hands-on application, modeling, practice and feedback.

          What to Expect

          Training participants will gain knowledge and understanding of the topics within the HANDS in Autism® framework and curriculum (above), be exposed to students with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the HANDS in Autism® training classroom (Indianapolis) or naturalistic setting (Evansville) with the ability to observe and shadow the HANDS in Autism® team working with the students, as well as to have the opportunity to practice and receive feedback on techniques and approaches introduced in training.

          Additionally, all training participants are required to complete pre- and follow-up training packets.

          Intended Audience

          The HANDS in Autism® Intensive Training Program is appropriate for school and community personnel working in both public and private settings with individuals with autism and related neurodevelopmental and behavioral disorders (teachers, paraprofessionals, therapists, consultants, social workers, administrators and other professionals).
