Description

Description

This project will prepare 24 new speech-language pathologists (SLP) and school psychologists (SP) with the knowledge and skills needed to improve culturally and linguistically diverse children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), in order to address the shortage of SLPs and SPs in Southern California and current gaps in evidence-based knowledge and skills. The program is a transdisciplinary preservice training program. Activities of this project include: (a) increasing the number of fully credentialed speech-language pathologists and school psychologists with shared evidence-based expertise in serving diverse children with ASD with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities in urban schools; (b) improving the knowledge and the transdisciplinary skills of personnel to better serve these children; (c) increasing the likelihood that diverse children with ASD will receive quality speech, language, and psychological services; and (d) seeking a way to sustain the program specializations by the end of the project.
