TEACCH - Fundamentals in Autism 2017

Great Falls – October 23 and 24, 2017

Bozeman – October 25 and 26, 2017 
The Fundamentals in Autism is a two-day workshop that will provide participants with an overview of the learning styles of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Structured TEACCHing strategies.
Structured TEACCHing is based on the understanding of the symptoms and learning styles of individuals with autism and the use of visual supports to provide meaning, promote independence and capitalize on the individual’s strengths. Participants will also learn behavior management strategies using Structured TEACCHing principles. The format of this workshop will include presentations, videos, interactive discussions, and small group activities.
At the completion of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify characteristics and learning styles of Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Develop individualized schedules and work/activity systems
  • Develop meaningful visual structure that promotes independence with educational activities
  • Problem solve behaviors using Structured TEACCHing principles 
This course is designed for educators, paraeducators, psychologists, and speech language pathologists.

Attendance is limited to 50 people.

Six OPI renewal units will be available for this training. This training is FREE from the OPI Montana Autism Education Project.
