The OPI Montana Autism Education Project is offering 35 hours of online training in Teaching Procedures (24 hours) and Behavior Interventions (11 hours) to public school staff in Montana who educate students with autism spectrum disorders. A listing and description of the training content is attached to this message. The training can be taken for OPI renewal units and ASHA CEUs.
You can find more information and register for the online training here. New groups start the first week of each month and you will be sent information then.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION IF YOU ARE TAKING THE TRAINING FOR ASHA CEUs:
Information for Speech-Language Providers
ASHA members and/or MT state licensed SLPs are qualified to earn ASHA CEUs for completing the online Relias Learning curriculum. In 2011, a MT licensed SLP completed the ATS training as an "Independent Study" course and earned ASHA CEUs.
ASHA requires that Independent Study activities are approved 30 days prior to the start of the learning activity.
Independent Study forms should be dated at least 30 days prior to the date of the first certificate for completing a module. Below is a link for the ASHA Independent-study form. Participants fill out the form and send it to Valeria Schmauch. Independent study plans are limited to 20 hours.
The link below will take you directly to the Independent Study form:
