Competencies for People Teaching Individuals with Autism and Other Pervasive Developmental Disorders. Third Edition.
This booklet outlines 30 competencies for individuals working with people who have autism or other pervasive developmental disabilities. For each competency, three levels are defined. At level one, trainees show mastery by identifying, discussing, or defining the concepts and skills; at level two, trainees discuss, participate, design, use, and evaluate the concepts and skills; and at level three, trainees are able to apply, teach, demonstrate, and provide training in the concepts and skills. Competencies are organized into seven areas: (1) general knowledge about developmental disabilities and autism; (2) inclusion, public policy, and the service system; (3) assessment and setting objectives; (4) programming; (5) positive behavior support; (6) medical and daily care; and (7) involvement with parents.
