Project Summary

The main objective of this project is to develop a comrphensive educational kit enhanced by an innovative VR tool.

Through this kit we aim to spread accurate knowledge about how to use ABA-based strategies among HED and professionals working in the field of autism (e.g., psychologists, special educators, speech language professionals, occupational therapists, support workers)-thereafter referred to as ASD HED graduates, and train a pool of those students in each partner country on practical ABA-based strategies which will enhance their employability.


· Investigate the quality of current ABA training via a field research

· Develop, pilot-test and validate an innovative training model (BST in conjunction with VR) for teachers/trainers to help them introduce ASD graduates into ABA

· Carry out local trainings for ASD graduates, to professionally progress through knowledge, skills and key competences development in ABA

· Promote and disseminate the benefits of the scientific discipline of Applied Behaviour Analysis

Implementation


-Field research in the partner countries. -Based on the results, developing tailored education material on basic ABA principles, supplemented by digital educational material (tutorials and VR game)

-Pilot-testing of the training model and local training for HE students -Dissemination activities

-ABA awareness capmaigne, Multiplier events Results: What project results and other outcomes do you expect your project to have?

-Greater understanding and awareness of autism and of the existing ABA practices in partner countries

-Improved access to and availability to ABA training opportunities
