Professional Trainings

The Utah Statewide Autism Education Project (USAEP) is an innovative project focusing on the educational needs of students with significant learning challenges, including autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This project will address the inconsistency of educator preparedness to serve students with these learning challenges through the establishment of training sites in each geographic region of the state of Utah. Statewide capacity will be increased by providing sustainable local resources (coaches and training sites) to assist with implementation of evidence-based practices.
