ACAR, in collaboration with the Transforming Autism Care Consortium (TACC), is growing a community where individuals can participate in shared learning, receive support, and contribute their expertise.
The Neurodevelopmental Learning Community offers the following professional development and training opportunities:
Autism Diagnostic Interview – Revised (ADI-R) Workshop
The ADI-R Introductory Online Workshop helps diagnosing practitioners and researchers improve interview skills in evaluating possible symptoms of autism
Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2) Workshop
The ADOS-2 Introductory Online Workshop is for professionals who would like to gain additional skills in diagnosing autism using the ADOS-2 across ages, developmental levels and language skills
Master Trainer (MT) Workshop for the WHO's Caregivers Skills Training (CST) Program
The MT workshop is for individuals who would like to become certified Master Trainers and help caregivers learn the skills needed to support their child’s growth and development within the context of the CST Program, developed by the World Health Organization with support from Autism Speaks
The Extension of Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) Autism Workshop consists of a hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing approach where a panel of experts lead virtual clinics for health professionals in local communities
