Through the network of 20 regional Education Service Centers (ESCs) around the state and in conjunction with the Texas Education Agency (TEA), the Texas Statewide Leadership for Autism Training (www.txautism.net) provides training, technical assistance, support, and resources for educators who serve students with autism. We are a part of TEA’s Texas Statewide Leadership Functions and Projects and are housed at Education Service Center Region 13 in Austin, TX.
The Texas Statewide Leadership for Autism Training (TSLAT) has created a survey for educators to report the needs of Texas educators regarding training and support for students with autism spectrum disorder. Results from this survey will guide the Education Service Centers across the state in their planning to efficiently and effectively serve professional educators. Please consider completing the survey at your earliest convenience; a high rate of survey returns ensures that the TSLAT has reliable data on which to base decisions.
To fill out the survey, please follow the link to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/autism2015
Please send this information to educators in Texas who support individuals with autism spectrum disorder. We are interested in information from educators who serve in a variety of roles including, but not limited to, paraeducators, special education teachers, general education teachers, speech language pathologists, assessment professionals, administrators, occupational therapists, and physical therapists.
For further information about the survey, please contact Cyndi O’Toole at 512-919-5180 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your input and your time.
