About the training:  Given the rise in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), school psychologists and other school-based professionals are increasingly required to participate in screening, assessment and educational planning and programming for students with autism. Thus, school psychologists are often asked to provide consultation and behavioral supports to children with autism in classroom settings. Participants will learn about behavioral consultation and how to support students with autism across different age groups and levels of functioning. Navigating the consultation relationship with teacher and other professionals will be discussed. Furthermore, the presentation will discuss ways that school psychologists can offer training and support to families of children with ASD and how to offer family-centered collaborative care. Several case examples will be utilized to discuss different behavioral interventions that can be applied to classroom settings.
