Autism Education Services (Autism EDS) is now offering their successful autism programs, autism behavior management and staff training to schools nationwide. From specific, hands-on training in autism behavior management and intervention strategies to research-based curriculum modifications and autism social skills training, Autism EDS provides comprehensive services which cover the gamut of autism programming, leading to lower cost yet highly productive educational programs.
The new, custom-developed autism programs (http://www.autismeducationservices.com/services/ ) implemented by Autism Education Services have exhibited great initial success in school districts in San Diego as well as Paso Robles Unified School District in California and Saint Vrain Valley School District in Colorado. After implementing the customized autism programs developed by Autism EDS, some of the school districts are seeing a substantial decrease in the amount of adult support required in over 90% of the participating students. Significant gains have also been realized in autism behavior management, self-regulation, communication and independence. “Now that we have worked with the Autism EDS team, we have strong and affordable autism programs for all of our Autism students on the spectrum,” says Marcia Murphy, Director of Special Education, Paso Robles Unified School District, CA.
Developing customized autism programs for school districts has so many layers and facets that many times school districts believe they already have an effective program until they look at the numbers. Autism Education Services (http://www.autismeducationservices.com ) knows how to develop autism programs that are legally defensible and cost-effective for the schools as well as proving to be more than helpful for the students and families that have been involved with clear, tangible results. Autism behavior management is one of the primary elements of the programs because autism behaviors are most interfering with the everyday social situations and routines. One strategy that the Autism EDS team employs is the use of autism toys (http://www.autismtoybox.com ) to teach parents how to play with their child at home. Autism Education Services custom autism programs also target these behaviors by using research-based autism strategies that can be carried over into the home.
The Autism Education Services team, with their 60+ years of combined experience in the autism and special education field, have developed highly-refined consultation packages that deliver professional and complete autism resources and solutions to both private and public school districts. "Our mission from day one has been to share our proven and recognized autism program models with teachers and program directors across the nation to help them respond to the needs of their students with autism. We are so happy to be able to do just that and to show direct, tangible results to each of the school districts we have worked with so far," says Autism Education Services founder Judy Gundrum.
Autism EDS’s new services deliver the one-stop solution for developing comprehensive autism programming, autism behavior management and training for all school teachers and staff designed to fit the needs of any school district and ultimately to improve the lives of children with autism and their families.
