Preparing Teachers & Paraeducators for the Successful Inclusion of Autistic Children (ASD PREP) is now recruiting for Phases 2 and 3!

 Learn more about the project and how to participate here.

The purpose of the ASD PREP study is to identify which evidence-based practices (EBPs) and strategies teachers and paraeducators use to more meaningfully include and retain autistic children in general education settings. We are recruiting General Education Teachers, Special Education Teachers, and Paraeducators who work with autistic students for Phases 2 and 3 of our research study:

  • Phase 2: Participants will provide feedback on their EBP use via an online survey (~45 minutes). Some participants in Phase 2 also will be invited to participate in Phase 3. You will receive a $60 gift card as a thank you for your time and feedback.
  • Phase 3: Participants will provide feedback on EBP use and individual and organizational factors that impact EBP use via a 45-60 minute phone/Zoom interview. You will receive a $40 gift card as a thank you for your time and feedback.
