We are now rolling out Year 4 of the CSESA Project. CSESA has launched in another 30 high schools across the country, making a total of 60 schools. As of now, we have recruited around 500 students and families and over 400 school staff for the ongoing study.
We are looking forward to working with the staff, students, and families at our CSESA schools!
One focus of the CSESA study is to increase secondary educators’ understanding of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This is being accomplished by providing Understanding Autism training to the staff at each of the high schools participating in the study. At the training, educators learn the typical characteristics of students with ASD and research-based best practices to support students with ASD when they exhibit challenging behaviors.
