Free Event / 1 CEU available
Sorry for that (unavoidable) postponement. We’re back on track!
On the 24th March 2021 Lorna Barry (PhD candidate) will provide us with an overview and discussion of her doctoral research, funded by the Irish Research Council, titled: Bridging the gap: Understanding Irish teacher’s implementation of evidence-based practices in the education of children with Autism.
Lorna is a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) with experience working with school-age populations, which stoked her interest in this topic. She will present the results of a scoping review conducted on the barriers and facilitators to implementing EBPs in schools, a qualitative interview study conducted with mainstream teachers in Ireland, and the results of a survey study that examined teachers’ knowledge and use of EBPs. Implications for practice and recommendations for practitioners will then be discussed. This event will be of interest to anyone looking to gain insights into factors that may help or hinder teachers’ use of EBPs with students with autism in Ireland, so come check it out!
