November Webinar to Focus on Teacher Training

I heard about this webinar on Valerie's List. Check it out!

November Webinar to Focus on Teacher Training
In partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, OAR invites interested teachers, educational administrators, parents, and community members from across the country to participate in a two-part webinar series on strategies for supporting students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Each multimedia presentation will feature footage from OAR's Understanding Autism: A Guide for Secondary School Teachers DVD, question-and-answer sessions with a panel of Wisconsin teachers, and guidance from special education consultant Daniel Parker on how to apply evidence-based information in the classroom setting.

Thursday, November 21 (3:30pm - 5:30pm CST)
The next webinar will focus on specific strategies that teachers can implement to promote success for their students with ASD, such as priming, academic modifications, visual supports, and reinforcement. It will also help participants become familiar with the Individualized Education Program (IEP) and steps to building effective partnerships with special educators and paraprofessionals. Click here to register for free today!

Space is limited to 500 participants for each, so be sure to register today! For those unable to participate, both webinars will be recorded and available as Windows media files (with links from the OAR Web site) beginning one week after the live event. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Ben Kaufman, director, programs and community outreach, at 703-243-9762 or
