Education and Training

MAC’s Autism Center provides training to parents statewide regarding services and programs necessary for children on the spectrum to reach their potential and the legal right to obtain these services. The trainings are updated regularly to reflect changes in the law, for example, current training curricula contain revised material that reflect the new state autism IEP bill and recent regulatory changes to the federal special education law, in addition to recent revisions in state law and regulations concerning age to initiative transition services and rights of parents and independent evaluators to observe their child in the classroom. All trainings are evaluated through an on-site survey of participants.

The Autism Center also offers trainings for medical professionals and educators (e.g., neuropsychologists, occupational therapists, physicians, teachers) who conduct independent evaluations of children with ASD on legal requirements and effective strategies to secure the full range of educational services necessary for children with autism to reach their potential and demonstrate competence.

To schedule a training, please contact Johanne Pino or call 617-357-8431 x234

Helping Children Learn

For 40 years, MAC has responded to the needs of children who are vulnerable because of poverty, race, limited English or disability and does not intend to stop. With education reform continuing to occupy a high priority on the state’s policy agenda, and with the severe economic crisis facing Massachusetts families, MAC is needed now, more than ever.
