The Indiana Resource Center for Autism is announcing its annual TEACCH® 5-Day classroom training that will be held in June in Indianapolis.
“This five-day course provides a theoretical foundation as well as hands-on opportunities to assess and teach elementary through high school-aged children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in a model classroom setting. It is grounded in an understanding of the learning styles of individuals with ASD and how to use teaching strategies that capitalize on learning strengths. During the first two days of this course, participants work collaboratively with the TEACCH® training team to set up a classroom with a focus on the physical structure, individual schedules, work systems, and structured tasks for five students with ASD. Beginning mid-week, the participants will observe and work directly with these students in the classroom.
“An emphasis is placed on the use of Structured TEACCH®ing principles to teach children and adolescents with ASD skills in the areas of academics (literacy and numeracy), communication, independence, social and leisure, vocational, relaxation, and coping strategies. The training includes presentations, small group discussions, model classroom activities, and hands-on experiences.”
