SCERTS Training

February 22-23, 2019

Cherry Hills Village, Colorado 

This course will introduce the SCERTS Framework: a comprehensive, multidisciplinary educational approach designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

About the Course

This model is not exclusive of other treatment approaches and educational methodologies, but rather provides a framework for those who are seeking guidelines for implementing a comprehensive educational plan that is based on our knowledge of the core developmental challenges faced by children with ASD, family-centered care, and our knowledge of the recommended tenets of educational programming. This model was designed to provide guidelines for helping children progress through the stages of becoming a competent social communicator. It was also designed to provide families and educational teams with the help they may need to feel successful in supporting the child.

On Day 2 of this course, participants will learn how to determine meaningful, purposeful, and motivating goals and strategies based on a child’s developmental stage, functional needs, and family priorities while also determining supports that can be embedded in the natural settings of a child’s life at home, school, or other settings (i.e. educational planning). 

Day 3 of this course will be split into two evening sessions and conducted via the web on March 25 & 27, 2019. This section will move toward a more advanced discussion of the use of the SCERTS assessment process to determine developmentally sensible and functional goals, to determine appropriate evidence-based supports, and to monitor progress over time in meaningful, functional contexts. Participants will learn how to use this assessment tool to determine a child’s stage of language acquisition, establish a profile of strengths and areas of need in those areas most impacted by the core challenges of social and emotional learning differences and to monitor progress over time.
