As the number of children being diagnosed with ASD increases, one of the many obstacles that parents face, is finding skilled providers for out-of-school services. At the same time, many of the providers for these services are searching for training and education on how to more effectively serve these children.
Summit is responding to this need by offering educational workshops, conference presentations, and small group training. Educating caregivers and professionals by providing them with an understanding of ASD and its characteristics, as well as tools for effectively working with children with ASD, will expand the network of informed service providers available to families.
Our workshops and training provide pre-set training courses, as well as custom-designed training courses to schools, allied health professionals, private agencies, parents, and community-based organizations. Our primary aim is to facilitate our participants’ training through engaging, entertaining, and effective course presentations. Our courses are both theoretical and practical, with an emphasis on active responding and competency-based learning. Our courses are suitable for administrators, teachers, classroom assistants, allied health professionals and related professionals working with individuals with ASD.
Summit Autism Services is approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board to offer type 2 continuing education (OP-10-2039).
