“Over 70 million people across the world suffer from autism”
Leading global training and education provider, Special Learning, has just announced that it is proudly sponsoring the American Psychological Association’s (APA’s) Continuing Education program. The provider specializes in: “behavior analysis and related evidence-based autism interventions for behavior analysts, parents; and educators and professionals who help individuals with autism and other mental health issues, in order to achieve independence” .
Because of the APA’s decision, Special Learning, which was established almost a decade ago, is now able to offer psychologists continuing education credits. The provider’s Founder and CEO, Karen Chung, stated that: “Since its inception, our mission has been to help the over 70 million people in the world living with autism. By providing opportunities for professionals and educators to simultaneously access the highest quality content and meet their continuing education requirements, we continue to bridge the knowledge gap that hinders access to quality services”.
Applied Behavior Analysis
When the organization was first set up to assist autistic children’s parents, where ever they are in the world; the provider’s focus was to ensure they achieved access to a first-class intervention known as ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis). Since that time, Special Learning has helped more than 10,000 people in more than a hundred different countries.
Special Learning’s training of in excess of 120,000 licensed psychologists in within America, has made a substantial difference to the mental health dilemma. The psychologists are taught how to implement and develop high grade Applied Behavior Analysis programs; so in that regard, the organization is providing a much needed solution to resolve the intense global shortage of high level ABA exponents. Moreover, by delivering BCBA candidate supervision training programs to professionals, Special Learning is playing its part in eradicating the obstruction which is limiting the number of fresh BCBAs joining the field every year.
Special Learning offers the most extensive spectrum of available solutions in the global marketplace. It boasts more than 500 educational and training resources in multiple languages, with even more being generated every four weeks. The provider operates in association with thought leaders across numerous behavioral and disciplinary health fields; so to that end, it has the means to attain the highest in-class learning opportunities which are accessible to parents, educators and professionals who support those with special needs and autism. The excellent real-time webinar series currently being shown by the provider, incorporate: organizational and professional ethics; multi-disciplinary collaboration; ADHD; and other relevant topics. Moreover, Special Learning is intending to bring out a highly innovative real-time Webinar series involving: “thought provoking and often considered “taboo” subjects including Severe Problem Behavior, Sexual Education, Transition, and Behavior Analysis in the Education”. These will be of great benefit to those who have concerns about these increasing common issues.
