Workshops and Training
Center for Spectrum Services offers workshops and trainings on numerous topics relevant to professionals, paraprofessionals, and parents.
Workshops are conducted by seasoned professionals in the autism field, including psychologists, clinical social workers, speech and language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, and behavioral specialists.
Professional & Para-Professional Trainings and Workshops
These classes include several courses for the educational professional, such as our month-long Summer Autism Institute and Fall and Spring Workshop Series. We also offer the Autism Certification Course, which is approved by the NYS Department of Education, as well as The Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) Course, a six-hour training in harassment, bullying, cyberbullying and discrimination in schools. Center for Spectrum Services is a NYSED approved sponsor of CTLE for certified classroom teachers, school leader professionals, and Level III teaching assistants. Trainings are also available upon request by districts to meet their supervision conference day needs.
Our Training Professionals Come to You
Our expert trainers are available to come to your facility to train your staff in many areas of working with children on the Autism Spectrum. From enhanced communication skills to educational approaches, from sensory integration to helping students on the spectrum prepare for college, can all be conveniently conducted right at your own facility.
Parent Trainings and Workshops
At Spectrum Services, we believe that parents must be partners in their child’s educational program. For this reason, we offer Parent Support and Parent Workshops free for any parent of a child with a developmental disability. Funding for coursework and childcare is provided through grants from the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities.
