LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Kentucky Autism Training Center at the University of Louisville is hosting a workshop May 3 and 4 on the Shelby Campus.
The two-day conference will review both the initial assessment of transition needs and the ongoing community-based assessment process that are outlined by the TEACCH (Treatment and Education of Autistic and related Communications-handicapped Children) Transition Assessment Profile.
The program will be held in the Founders Union building, 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Cost for the workshop is $50 and check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.
The workshop will be conducted by John Thomas, director of training for the Autism Society of North Carolina. The primary objective of the presentation is to familiarize participants with instructional procedures that support the development of post-school outcomes. The presentation will also review how information from community-based instruction is used in the classroom to support skills development.
Thomas is coordinator of direct service staff training for 400 staff and staff supervisor for the Autism Early Intervention Model. He is also a trainer of the TEACCH Transition Assessment Profile and documentation system for community-based instruction.
