Audience: Advocates, Educators, Other District/School Staff, Parents | Topic: Autism, Special Education | Hosted by: Office of Special Education
Presented by Bryn Harris, Ph.D., NCSP, LP
This webinar is targeted for all members of school-based teams that conduct special education evaluations for Autism. In this webinar, participants will learn about strategies and benefits for engaging in interprofessional collaborations with clinical and health providers. Collaborating with these providers in meaningful ways can improve assessment and identification outcomes and can improve home-school collaborations. Given known Autism disparities in services in both school and clinical/health settings, working collaboratively across systems will ultimately improve health disparities and student outcomes.
- Understand key service providers in clinical and health settings that often serve children and families with Autism.
- Learn research-based strategies for collaborating and aligning with clinical and health providers that will improve school-based assessment and intervention effectiveness.
- Recognize common disparities in service provision across systems and how to prevent such challenges and improve coordinated care for children with Autism.
