Early Childhood Development 3-Day Training

Join the HANDS in Autism® Team for an intensive training that focuses on providing hands-on experience and coaching in a simulated classroom/work environment. Individuals on the spectrum participate, facilitating a rich learning environment for all. 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, workplace, and/or intervention team through hands-on application and learning.

What to Expect: A range of instructional methods are included to provide optimal learning and application, including: online modules, traditional didactic instruction, small and large group discussions, and observation of HANDS in Autism team interaction with a range of individuals representing varying functional abilities. The training environment will provide exposure to a variety of associated behavioral, educational, and topic-specific examples with live observation, video samples, and scenario-based discussions and activities.

Day 1: Visual Structure and Educational Assessment

Day 2: Behavioral Assessment and Skills Teaching

Day 3: Tasks & Adaptations, Behavior Intervention, and Social Skills

Intended Audience: Early childhood service providers, service coordinators, preschool teachers, primary special educators, daycare employees, administrators, and other professionals working with students with developmental disabilities.

Transition and Vocational Programming 3-Day Training

In an effort to support job coaches, rehabilitation counselors, transition teachers, specialists and coordinators during the times of COVID-19 and school and business closures, HANDS in Autism® will be offering our Intensive Trainings online!

We are making important modifications to the training format and structure—carefully considering the impact that online training and learning may have on all areas relating to essential elements in programming for success for individuals with ASD and others with social, communication and behavioral disorders. 

The use of evidence-based principles and practices are no less relevant in the current context; but with more online and/or hybrid (i.e., online and live) efforts, the application of these principles is paramount. Effective adaptations and collaborations must be used to ensure, wherever and however the instruction is delivered, that essential elements for successful intervention are implemented to attain the most successful outcomes.

Who should be attending?
We are happy to welcome employment providers, coaches, educators, coordinators & specialists in the community, work & school settings!

What is this training about?
Our online training is similar to our live training with the exception of the live classroom and workplace experiences. That is, we are designing interactive activities to allow opportunities for engaging in simulated practice of skills learned both independently and in groups, as well as opportunities for ongoing mentoring, coaching and feedback from our HANDS trainers.

We do have to warn you that just because you can take class while wearing your pajamas, it does not mean that the course is easy! To gain the skills you can take with you to your school, office or community setting, you will need to work with us just as hard in this online format as is required during the traditional onsite training!

Here is what you will engage in:
  • Topics including proactive supports, workplace and community accommodations, goal setting, skills assessment and teaching
  • Interactive practice, coaching and feedback within simulated and video-based formats
  • Practical discussions regarding problem-solving solutions that work across settings and disabilities
  • Experiences perfect for new and experienced employment or programming service providers and managers, job coaches, transition specialists, coordinators & teachers
