The STAR Program (Strategies for Teaching based on Autism Research) course will provide participants with two full days of face-to-face training (provided by a certified STAR trainer). This training will be available at the Cedar Falls CRAEA office on October 16 & 17 and via Zoom on December 15. Reach out to Kari Christenson, Special Education Consultant, with questions.

Central Rivers AEA is hosting STAR (Strategies for Teaching based on Autism Research) Training for special education teachers in October. This two-day Comprehensive Training is for special education teachers who serve students with significant intellectual disabilities in grades PK-8.
This is a great opportunity for districts that have access to the STAR curriculum, but need more training for their teachers. Training is provided on evidenced-based strategies that teachers can use regardless if they have a STAR curriculum or not (so there is no need to purchase the curriculum to attend the training). Registration is needed by September 15 to ensure we have enough participants to host this valuable training.
