Published: September 18th, 2019

Special Education Administrators, please see this second opportunity to participation in an AzSAP Project Activity:

Opportunity for Participation in the Arizona Statewide Autism Project (AzSAP)

An Innovative Project in Cooperation with Arizona Department of Education, Exceptional Student Services, Early Childhood Education, & STAR® Autism Support

The Arizona Department of Education/Exceptional Student Services and Early Childhood Education Sections are pleased to announce a training opportunity designed to increase pre-K/elementary or secondary school teams’ capacity to work effectively with children with developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Each of the two-day trainings provides a background and a strong emphasis on evidence-based teaching strategies and practices for children with developmental disabilities, including ASD. Team members attending the training include special education teachers, general education teachers, related services providers, and paraprofessionals. An administrator is a required member/leader of the team but will attend a two-hour workshop/webinar instead of the two-day workshop.

Each of the trainings is supported by scheduled on-site coaching visits during the remainder of the school year to support implementation.

Training dates for STAR® Pre-K-Elementary: November 6-7, 2019

Training dates for Links® Secondary: October 21-22, 2019

Application/request for participation deadline: September 24, 2019
