Claire Greer, Consultant for Autism, Severe/Profound and Multiple Disabilities for the NC Department of Public Instruction, has developed 5 modules for training autism teams in each LEA (Local Education Agency, or school district). The LEA selects a group of professionals—often a special education teacher, a speech pathologist, and an occupational therapist—to attend these intensive sessions. These teams are then available to instruct other teachers/related service providers as well as consult with schools/teachers on challenging cases. Only two modules have been released, but more will be available soon. Not an easy task for one person, to train trainers for each of the 115 LEAs in North Carolina…but at least she’s working on it!
