There is a significant shortage of professionals trained to work effectively with students with autism, particularly with older students. to address this problem, Nashoba Learning Group will train 13 professionals to teach and interact effectively with students on the autism spectrum and will build the field by increasing the number of professionals with the training to teach adolescent age learners with autism. These new staff members will be hired within the next 12 months with each new staff member arriving two weeks in advance of a new student and participating in intensive training in order to qualify to work with secondary school aged students with autism.
