The National Professional Development Center on Autism (NPDC) developed a professional development model for increasing the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) in schools. The NPDC model includes information on a goal attainment scale to monitor student progress, an overview of EBPs, and a process of selecting EBPs. Ann Sam, PhD, will partner with Guilford County Schools to provide training on these components. Additionally, she will provide an overview of foundational EBPs (reinforcement, prompting, and visual supports). Training will include specific practice to promote independence and adaptive/vocational skills, social communication needs of students, and promote school readiness, academics, and behavior. Training will occur over a two-day period.
