Structuring the Unstructured: Evidence-Based Practices for Students with ASD and EBD Across Educational Settings

VIRTUAL, Aug. 5-6, 2021

All students benefit from structure, predictability, and routine. Especially for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or Emotional Behavioral Disorder (EBD), this is important not only in classroom settings but also in non-classroom and extra-curricular settings as well. Learn from experts in the field as well as school teams to identify evidence-based practices that can be used to create structure and promote engagement across educational settings within a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS).
