GATTAP Regional Team Meetings

As a continuation of professional learning opportunities offered to enhance teacher expertise and build state capacity to serve students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), the Regional Autism Team Meetings will be conducted during the 2011-2012 school year. The regional meetings are planned for Bibb County, Pickens County, Dougherty County and Liberty County.

There will be two meetings in each region. During these meetings, members will have the opportunity to share concerns and effective strategies with each other as well as staff from the Divisions of Special Education Services and Supports. The local system is responsible for funding and providing a substitute teacher as needed for each of the two, one-day meetings.

It is recommended that two or more representatives from each school district attend these meetings, such as a teacher and SLP capable of assisting with training for school systems. Although the teams may or may not be the same staff who attended the autism academy, the regional meetings will build on those skills developed during the academy.

The dates and locations for the spring meetings are posted and registration is currently available. All Team Meetings will be from 8:30 – 3:30. Thank you for your collaboration in developing our teams across the state. For questions or additional information please contact Dr. Alice Murphy at 404-657-9957 or
