Fundamentals of Structured TEACCHing and Behavior Management for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (October 2020)

The Fundamentals in Autism is a two-day workshop that will provide participants with an overview of the learning styles of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Structured TEACCHing strategies.
Structured TEACCHing is based on the understanding of the symptoms and learning styles of individuals with autism and the use of visual supports to provide meaning, promote independence and capitalize on the individual’s strengths. Participants will also learn behavior management strategies using Structured TEACCHing principles. The format of this workshop will include presentations, videos, interactive discussions, and small group activities.
At the completion of the training, participants will be able to:
  • Identify characteristics and learning styles of Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Develop individualized schedules and work/activity systems
  • Develop meaningful visual structure that promotes independence with educational activities
  • Problem solve behaviors using Structured TEACCHing principles

This course is designed for educators, para-educators, allied health clinicians and caregivers.

Participants will have an opportunity to apply Structured TEACCHing principles to teach students of varying functioning levels in a classroom setting during group and individual activities. The training includes presentations, small group discussions, demonstration classroom activities and hands-on experiences for five consecutive days.
