The introductory ASD virtual FLEX course covers the same content as the in-person 5-day ASD course but is offered over a 5-week period for maximum flexibility to those juggling work and home commitments. Topics include the basics of ASD, individual differences, understanding and changing behaviour, social and communication skills, life skills, and much more!
Participants are given ample time to learn and work with the concepts through a combination of pre-recorded modules and Live Zoom sessions. Live sessions include a 60-minute orientation, mandatory 90-minute interactive sessions twice a week, and optional small group tutorial sessions to review the week’s content and receive support with assignments.
Our instructors use research-based methods of effective adult instruction, including interactive large and small group discussions, application exercises, as well as a variety of ways of evaluating participant learning. The ASD virtual FLEXible 5-week course will prepare participants to apply the concepts and strategies to their instructional program. This course is suitable for teachers, paraprofessionals, and other educational staff.
