Evelyn Shaw, M.Ed., is a technical assistance specialist at FPG where she works on the Early Childhood Technical Assistance (ECTA) Center and the Efficacy Study of Elementary Learners with ASD (TESELA). As a technical assistance specialist with ECTA, she is the topic specialist on ASD and early identification and works on issues related to child find and use of data to target improvements. For TESELA, she conducts program assessments and provides training and support for elementary school sites. She has worked in technical assistance for 28 years. Her research interests focus on the translation of research on evidence-based interventions and practices to implementation of these practices at multiple levels (e.g., home, community, provider, program, and state). She worked on the Comparison for Two Comprehensive Treatment Models for Preschool-Aged Children with Autism grant to evaluate comprehensive treatment models for young children with ASD, monitoring fidelity of implementation of treatment models. On the National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders and ASD Toddler Initiative, she worked with states to develop training, technical assistance, and on-going coaching for their demonstration sites in early intervention and/or school programs with emphasis on increasing the quality of the program environment, scaling functional, measurable IFSP/IEP goals, and implementation of evidence-based practices with fidelity. For Promoting Use of Evidence-Based Practices for Children and Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their Families in Saudi Arabia, she provided consultation services to the Center for Autism Research Staff in Saudi Arabia and developed and conducted training.
