This virtual workshop will provide participants with an overview of the learning styles of adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and Structured TEACCHing. Structured TEACCHing is based on the understanding of the symptoms and learning styles of individuals with ASD and the use of visual supports to provide meaning, promote independence at the employment site, and capitalize on the individual’s strengths. Participants will also learn an antecedent-based behavior problem-solving approach.

Objectives:

At the completion of training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify learning styles of autism spectrum disorder in adolescents and adults
  • Develop individualized schedules and work systems
  • Develop meaningful visual structure that promotes independence with job responsibilities
  • Develop strategies for addressing social communication challenges at work
  • Address challenging behaviors through an antecedent-based problem-solving approach
  • Implement strategies to support employers of individuals with ASD

Target Audience:

This course is designed for job coaches, educators, day program staff, and psychologists, as well as others interested in supporting adolescents and adults with ASD at employment sites.

Presenters:

  • S. Michael Chapman, Director of Employment Services, TEACCH Autism Program
  • Brianne Tomaszewski, PhD, Assistant Professor, TEACCH Autism Program
  • Keri Waldrop, BA QP, Employment Services Program Coordinator, TEACCH Autism Program
