CCIU Staff Present at National Autism Conference

CCIU Preschool Special Education was well represented at the National Autism Conference held at Penn State University from August 6-9.

The National Autism Conference is made possible by the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN), Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13 and the Pennsylvania Department of Education in partnership with Penn State Outreach and the Penn State College of Education.

The conference provides comprehensive, evidence-based information to assist educators, other professionals and families in developing effective educational programming for all students with autism spectrum disorders.

Below is a list of presentations by CCIU staff at the 2019 National Autism Conference:

Liz Willis, Lindsay Ambrosino and Courtney Cohen presented "Make It Count: Ensuring Effective Staff Training Procedures"

Jessica Corbett and Tia Beete presented a poster: "Establishing Echoic Control Using a Tact-to-Echoic Protocol"

Lindsay Ambrosino, Courtney Cohen, Liz Willis and Lauren Niles presented a second poster: "The Parent Training Project: Helping Parents Help Their Children in Autism Support Classrooms"

Brielle Guidone applied and received a scholarship to attend the conference because she is enrolled in a BCBA program.

Congratulations to all of our PSE staff for a job well done representing the CCIU!
