WI DPI Two Day Autism Trainings
Children with the impairment of autism frequently present unique challenges to teachers and support staff responsible for meeting the child’s educational needs. Numerous statewide training opportunities are available throughout the year to assist in ongoing staff development designed to improve educational outcomes for children with autism.
The Department of Public Instruction will offer statewide autism training for school personnel during the 2013-14 school year.
Basic level training will provide an introduction to effective educational programming for students with autism. Basic level training is a great training for general education staff, administrators, paraprofessionals, families, and special education staff that are new or would like a review of working with students with autism.
All trainings are 2 days and include lunch and breaks both days. Breakfast is provided on the second day of training only. Training Schedule: Day 1: 10:30-4:00 and Day 2: 7:30-3:00.
