Professional Development

School-based collaboration is critical to address the unique and pervasive needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) across the full continuum of educational placements and programming. Teams that utilize a data-based, collaborative, problem-solving format to address school-wide and individual student behavioral and academic problems are more effective and efficient at supporting students and have members who are more knowledgeable and accountable. Meeting Mechanics assists teams in the problem-solving process when working with individual students or building. In the afternoon, participants will complete an Educational Benefit Review that addresses the effectiveness of previous IEPs in order to target discussion points to enhance the future IEP process.
