This workshop will focus on the administration of the TEACCH Transition Assessment Profile (TTAP), a comprehensive test that was developed for older children, adolescents, and adults with autism spectrum disorders, with special emphasis on those with transitional and vocational needs.  The TTAP consists of a formal assessment evaluating the following six major functional skill areas: [1) Vocational Skills, 2) Vocational Behavior, 3) Independent Functioning, 4) Leisure Skills, 5) Functional Communication, and 6) Interpersonal Behavior], within three different contexts (Direct Observation, Home and School/Work).  The informal assessment is a tool for the development of appropriate transition goals and objectives within community-based instruction settings. 

This workshop format is combination of lecture and small group work to facilitate learning to use the TTAP tools.  Participants will view videos and practice administration with other participants.

Objectives:

Upon completion of this training, the participant will be able to:

  • Administer, score, and interpret the TTAP results
  • Develop a Cumulative Record of Skills (CRS) to help identify individual vocational preferences (even for individuals with limited communication skills) and to serve as a functional resume  
  • Use the information from this instrument to guide the development of an effective transition, and or vocational plan
  • Make environmental accommodations to enhance an individual’s positive behavior and performance
  • Understand which skills lead to positive adult outcomes for individuals with an autism spectrum disorder

CEUs:

1.35 CEUs are available upon completion of the entire course.

Participants receiving credit for a course are responsible for checking with their state licensing board or accrediting organization to determine if the event meets their continuing education requirements.
