LASARD Project hosts partner school workshop in New Orleans
LASARD hosted a workshop for their partner districts and schools in the southern part of Louisiana on Friday, September 8th. Over 60 educators and family members attended from East Baton Rouge Parish Schools, Tangipahoa Parish Schools, St. Tammany Parish Schools, Plaquemines Parish Schools, Algiers Charters, FirstLine Schools, and Collegiate Academies. The focus of the day was on preventative behavior strategies for students with ASD. Attendees participated in small group jigsaw sessions, demonstrations of strategies, and breakout sessions focusing on data collection. The teams also participated in BYOP (Bring Your Own Problem) sessions in which teams presented a challenging problem and other team members brainstormed ideas to solve the problem. Participants noted they enjoyed being able to share with other teams from across the state.
