In response to the growing number of children being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the New York State Legislation enacted Chapter 143 of the laws of 2006 to amend Sections 3004(4) and (5) of the Education Law to require that all persons applying for a teaching certificate or license on or after February 2, 2007, as a special education teacher or as a school administrator who works in special education, complete course work or training in the needs of children with ASD.
This New York State Education Department certified training meets the new requirements for certified teachers and administrators in New York State and is designed to instruct professionals, i.e., special educators, administrators and clinical staff who assist in the treatment and educational process for those diagnosed with ASD. The training is also available to others including teacher assistants, aides and parents.
If you would like more information on the NYSED training, please contact Dr. Mara Vanderzell (315) 797-6241
Our next NYSED Training will take place on Thursday, August 17, 2017.
