PEERS - Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills AUTISM

For more information or to register for this training, visit:

PEERS is a 16-week program, focused on the development of specific social skills related to making and keeping friends. The program includes both a teen class as well as a weekly class for social coaches. Social coaches are taught weekly what skills the teens are working on and how they can best support the teen practice and implement the specific social skills outside of the weekly classes. Teens participate in the lesson related to specific social skills, followed by opportunities to practice the skills being addressed, and are assigned homework to complete between sessions to practice the new skills. Lessons cover topics such as starting and ending conversations, finding common interests with others, using electronic communication, and having get-togethers. If interested, please complete the PEERS referral to start the process.

Intended Audience

Adolescents with autism and family/social coaches.

Putting EBPs into Practice: Antecedent-Based Interventions AUTISM

For more information or to register for this training, visit:

The National Clearinghouse on Autism Evidence and Practice released the 2020 Evidence-Based Practices Report identifying 28 evidence-based practices (EBPs) for autism. Antecedent-based interventions (ABI) is one of the 28 EBPs identified. This training will discuss antecedent-based interventions, when they are used, how to choose one, and why they are effective. Examples of various ABI will be shared demonstrating how they can support student success in various domains. Participants will independently view an online module, then participate in a three-hour session connecting information from the module back to practice. By the end of the training participants will be able to identify at least three examples of ABI, name the appropriate time to use ABI, identify at least two ABI to use with one individual with autism and when they will be used.

Intended Audience

Special education teachers, general education teachers, service providers, clinicians and families
