REACH: Real Experience in Autism Classroom Helps
UCF Center for Autism and Related Disabilities
This project is aimed at enhancing community capacity for providing high quality educational programs for students with ASD by increasing the supply of teachers, psychologists, and speech language pathologists who are well-prepared for facing the challenges presented by students with autism. This will be accomplished through collaborative relationships between the University of Central Florida's Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (UCF-CARD), university instructors, undergraduate students, and local elementary and secondary schools with highly skilled, experienced autism teachers who are using best practice strategies for educating students with autism. the project will also enhance the quality of education received by students with ASD across five school districts by providing experienced teachers extra time to provide intensive individual instruction to their students with autism.
