According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in 98 children in Georgia has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). As this condition becomes more common, we are offering additional training for your staff to better meet the needs of children with ASDs in your school.
Marcus Autism Center is working with the Georgia Department of Education to offer a new training program. The ANCA Program will help locally nominated educators administer and use data from the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills-Revised (ABLLS-R) to guide the development of developmentally appropriate goals based on the individual needs of the learner.
Leading teachers, facilitators and coordinators from eight educational regions will work directly with our consultants. The course material will be delivered via face-to-face instruction, telemedicine (video chat using a secure server) or webinars. Participants will be trained to:
After the first session, each participant will identify a student to work with for the remainder of the sessions. Participants will conduct assessments with this child and develop goals and objectives based on the assessment.
Materials and competency measures for this child will be used throughout the training series, and the competency measures must be met by all participants. Attendance at all training sessions is necessary, as each training session builds on lessons from the previous session.
