The General Professional Trainings are geared toward:  A) individuals who are paid to care for children with autism who are not family members including babysitters, nannies, live in nannies, au pairs, respite care workers/volunteers, daycare providers, and foster parents; B) paraprofessionals who are not licensed or certified including teaching assistants, instructional assistants, and registered behavioral technicians (RBTs); and C) licensed/certified professionals who have little to no experience in providing educational/therapeutic services to children with autism on the topic of the training.

These aim to provide education and training for autism service providers in order to elevate the standard of care for children with autism.
