CPS Team Presents Strategies to Support Students With Autism


YAI ConferenceCPS’ Autism Support Team was invited to share insights on improving educational outcomes for students with autism at YAI’s International Conference on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (ID/DD). The conference, presented May 4-7, 2015 in New York, NY, is a global gathering on the future of the field and serves as a major forum for the exchange of ideas and information pertaining to programs, policies and strategies that enhance the lives of people with ID/DD.

CPS’ team offered practical strategies to assist school teams with identifying children with ID/DD, as well as developing a continuum of services for students with autism. Participants were treated to a flowchart outlining a successful identification model being used in CPS.

The CPS team included Stephany Taylor, student services manager; Sarah Irey, speech language pathologist; Eunice Miller, school psychologist; Kimberly Richards, occupational therapist; and Meg Ruttle, intervention specialist.
