What is Early Childhood Intensive Training?
The START Early Childhood Training involves intensive training on effective practices to increase knowledge and skills that enhance the educational programming and outcomes for young children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
Early Childhood Training Curriculum
The START Early Childhood training follows a curriculum developed by START based on recommendations from the National Research Council report (2001), the National Professional Developmental Center on ASD (2009), and the research literature on ASD as well as direct experience.
Effective Practices Assessment Tool for Young Children with ASD
The Effective Practices Assessment Tool was developed from a review of the literature on critical practices necessary for effective programming for young children with ASD. Establishing these practices in a program/classroom is important to allow children to make steady progress toward successful involvement in general education environments. The tool allows teams to rate the current level of implementation of critical practices and also re-evaluate progress over time. Examples are provided for three anchor levels.
