Description

This project will increase the quantity and diversity of special education teachers in a Master's program designed to prepare participants to serve students identified with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The program is also designed to increase the qualifications of these newly trained special educators to implement evidence-based practices for comprehensive instructional programming. Activities of this project include: (a) training highly qualified special education teachers to implement evidence-based practices and comprehensive programming for students with ASD; (b) enhancing the current teacher preparation program in ASD to include transition planning and interdisciplinary teaming to support increased inclusion of individuals with ASD in school and community settings; and (c) expanding the mentorship/demonstration site program to include opportunities for high-quality practicum experiences in a variety of settings with increased emphasis on high-poverty schools and exemplary transition programs.
