Teaching kids with autism - Around the Arch
September 2013 Issue
A graduate program in the College of Education is working with educators in Georgia to help them learn new strategies for teaching children with autism. The college has received a $1.2 million federal grant to continue the program through 2017. The Collaborative Personnel Preparation in Autism (COPPA) project is a partnership between special education faculty and four area public school systems: Clarke, Gwinnett, Madison and Oconee counties. More than 70 percent of the funding will be used to fund graduate fellowships for 45 students to become highly qualified and adaptive curriculum certified public school teachers to serve children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in grades K–5. Applicants for the fellowships will be considered from across the nation, with priority given to those with ASD experience, who are from underrepresented groups, and who are not currently certified in special education.
