The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the second largest school district in the nation, has selected the Center for Autism and Related Disorders’ CARD eLearning™ program to provide the district with intense training in evidence-based principles of behavioral health treatment for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Over 6,000 LAUSD teachers and support staff will participate in the training.
The Center for Autism and Related Disorders, Inc. (CARD) is the world’s largest provider of state-of-the-art, early intensive behavioral intervention for individuals with autism spectrum disorders. In addition to providing treatment for thousands of children worldwide, CARD develops and utilizes technology to increase access to training for professionals who work with individuals who have been diagnosed with ASD. The CARD eLearning™ program (http://www.cardelearning.com) trains educators and other professionals in the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA), which has been empirically proven to be the most effective treatment for individuals with ASD and is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Surgeon General.
CARD eLearning™ is a 20-hour online training course designed to facilitate effective intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders by equipping users with foundational knowledge in ABA. The training consists of nine video-based training modules which feature online note taking, quizzes, a final exam, and a certificate of course completion.
