Description

Description

Florida has added an autism endorsement to its certification areas. Project ACE is designed as a preservice training program to assist current teachers in the field in gaining content and practical knowledge to meet the state autism endorsement requirements and to meet the unique and diverse needs of infants, toddlers, and children with autism. Twenty students per year for the 4 years of the project will complete 4 Web-based courses and 2 field-based practica on the nature of autism, interventions for communication and social development, behavior management and positive behavioral support, and assessment and diagnosis. The project will also use a variety of technologies to provide ongoing interaction during fieldwork, including interactive video and consultation with experts through the Centers for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD) network. Teachers who complete the program will serve as mentors for incoming cohorts of teachers.
