Arkansas Autism Partnership (AAP) has selected Autism Training Solutions (ATS) to provide online autism training to direct line staff, lead therapists and parents participating in Arkansas' Autism Medicaid Waiver Program.
Starting November 1, 2012, the twenty-five (25) agencies contracted to provide autism services through the Autism Medicaid Waiver Program will be given subscriptions to Autism Training Solutions' 40-hour training platform. The ATS program will cover different topics under the umbrella of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), including Discrete Trial Instruction, Naturalistic Teaching and Principles of Behavior. Agencies will also provide staff with up to 80 hours of hands-on training to further bridge the gap between knowledge and application.
"We are excited to be part of such an important state initiative," stated Emaley McCulloch, Co-Founder and President of Autism Training Solutions. "By combining the ATS online training program with a hands-on training component, the state of Arkansas has created a standard of training that will allow children across Arkansas to uniformly receive a high quality of service."
