Description

The number of children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder is increasing around the world. More teachers are responsible for educating these children in mainstream classrooms.

The New England Centre for Children (NECC) in Boston Massachusetts is a global leader in the provision of effective, evidence-based educational services to children with autism.

It has developed several evidence-informed programs to assist teachers working with students with autism and related conditions in mainstream schools.

NECC and school professionals use technology and live coaching to collaborate with teachers. The idea is provide a comprehensive classroom supports that integrate best clinical practices and mirror the structure and support often found only in specialised settings.

Join Vinnie Strully, Founder, President and CEO of NECC, and Kim Walter, Senior Clinician to learn about their consultancy model and how it has been adapted to meet the needs of schools and teachers around the world.

Event is free, registration is essential.
