Training rural providers in the assessment and treatment of emotional and behavioral disorders in autism  

This program is targeted toward school psychologists and community mental health practitioners in rural New York and aims to increase knowledge of best practices in the assessment and treatment of emotional and behavioral disorders in school-aged children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The University of Rochester will develop a training manual and provide training, complete with evaluation of changes in the participants' knowledge of best practices (through pre/post knowledge tests, Case Study Scenario Checklists, etc.). The grantee will also evaluate the content and format of training to prepare it for use in future community education activities. There is a great need for capacity building programs targeted toward these professionals in rural New York as well as effective training resources that can be replicated for larger groups and disseminated across other geographical areas.
