Why the HANDS in Autism Summer Training Program?
Our week-long program focuses on providing hands-on experience and coaching in a training classroom environment. While the program includes traditional instructional methods such as lectures and discussion, the emphasis of training is the hands-on application of a variety of techniques and the process of determining techniques appropriate for each student, classroom, and intervention team.
