As I've stated in the previous post, I'm going to be sharing information I learn through my training with the START (STatewide Autism Resources & Training) program. This post will serve as an outline or point of reference to give you an idea to what topics will be covered and when. Each module consists of a two-day training session. Each day runs from 8:30-3:30.
September 17: Orientation (8:30-11:30)
September 30 and Oct 1: Autism Overview/Teaming (Module 1)
November 4 and 5: Educational Strategies (Module 2)
December 2 and 3: Behavior (Module 3)
January 11 and 12: Peer to Peer (Module 4)
February 10 and 11: IEP (Individual Educational Plan) Development/Implementation (Module 5)
March 3 and 4: Systems Change through Coaching (Module 6)--effectively delivering educational supports in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).
April 12 and 13: Weather Make-up Days (A necessity in planning for Michigan winters, I'm afraid.)
Author's Note: As you can see by the calendar, Modules 1 and 2 have already been presented. I will try to give a summary of both Modules (and perhaps some related posts) soon. This Thursday I will speak to my support group about START and explain what it is about.
