Eastern Kentucky Autism Training Project  

This proposed new initiative will address the need for ongoing, autism-specific training of parents, educators, and service providers in rural Appalachia. The primary goals of this Training of Trainers (TOT) project include providing families and providers in this rural region with access to practical research-based information, offering comprehensive workshop modules based upon the needs of local providers and parents/caregivers, and developing a network of local service providers with ASD-specific training to build the capacity for support of families in the region. Ultimately, this pilot project will serve as the beginning of a statewide training network. Project Status
