The Delaware Network for Excellence in Autism (DNEA), housed at UD’s Center for Disabilities Studies, offers training and technical assistance that benefits individuals with autism, their families, and the professionals who serve them. We are pleased to announce our statewide virtual training schedule designed to introduce participants to the core characteristics of autism and practices that provide support in a variety of settings.

DNEA Intermediate and Advanced Training Content is designed for individuals who have attended Introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorder and Introduction to Evidence-Based Practices or have a similar foundational knowledge. These trainings are often discipline-specific and will address more advanced evidence-based practices and supports.

Brought to you by the Delaware Network for Excellence in Autism (DNEA), this social skills instruction training discusses how social skills are developed and how that development can look different for students with autism. The training considers ways of assessing social skills, skills to target, and explores evidence-based strategies that can support autistic individuals.  Additionally, the training provides an overview of the Kits for Kids Educational Program for peer training, created by the Organization for Autism Research (OAR).

Participants will be emailed log-in information and training details approximately 48 hours before the training date. Please check the email you used to register and/or your JUNK mail if you do not find the confirmation in your inbox. Participants will be emailed a certificate of attendance approximately two weeks post training.

Seating is reserved for Delaware residents and Delaware professionals. The DNEA reserves the right to cancel training if the minimum threshold for attendance is not reached.

Please email Nicole Garrity at garrityn@udel.edu for any accommodation requests. Please submit any accommodation requests at least 72 hours in advance in order to ensure accommodations can be coordinated and provided.

March 15, 2023

When it comes to research on autism and human sexuality, there are three main areas: (1) trying to understand and describe what sexual expression looks like, (2) looking at sexual abuse risk and resilience, and (3) identifying how best to teach sex education. This talk will overview the latest research in these areas and cover topics such as gender identity, sexual abuse protective factors, and sex education resources.

Join Dr. Sarah Curtiss, Assistant Professor of Education at the University of Delaware, to hear what the research tells us about autism and sexual expression, sexual abuse risk and resilience, and sex education.
