is Technical Assistance?
What is Training?
Technical Assistance is a service, provided by CARD, to schools and
agencies, which have direct interaction with individuals on the autism
spectrum. The focus of technical assistance is on building capacity
with a teacher and/or team around an entire classroom issue or concern.
Technical Assistance does not focus on an individual student.
If your concern/request is in regards to a specific student/child, who
is currently a CARD constituent, please contact the child's CARD Consultant
for Direct Assistance services. If the child is not a CARD constituent,
the child's parents would need to register with CARD before services
would be provided.
If you would like to schedule technical assistance please click on the
link at the end of this page to bring up the request form.
Training is provided by CARD to schools, agencies, and parent support
groups on topics of importance to those involved with individuals with
autism and other related disabilities. The focus of training is on awareness,
skill development and enhancement, systems change, and capacity building.
