We’d like to invite you to join us for the AIT Booster Series Discussion over Trauma-Informed Practices for Students with ASD. This is not a mandatory meeting.
Students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are at high risk for experiencing stressful and traumatic life events (Mehtar and Mukaddes 2011; Taylor and Gotham 2016). Evidence-based practices (EBP) are interventions or a set of procedures in which research shows the practices produce positive outcomes for children and youth with ASD (The National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders, 2022) This module aligns EBP for students with ASD with a trauma-informed framework created by Dr. Lori Desautels with the Educational Neuroscience Symposium at Butler University College of Education and Revelations in Education. This framework is referred to as Applied Educational Nueroscience (AEN) and is based upon four pillars which support a relational and brain aligned approach for all students (Revelations in Education, 2020).
Join TASN ATBS trainers and other AIT members as we examine and discuss how trauma-informed practices align with EBP for ASD and how educators can utilize the AEN framework as they provide educational services to students with ASD.
Prior to participating in this discussion, participants are expected to watch the Trauma-Informed Practices for Students with ASD module on the TASN ATBS Moodle site. The discussion will relate directly to the module.
