Training and Continuing Education (CE)
The Autism Center for Children is a full training clinic and BACB-approved Continuing Education (CE) provider. Dr. Crittendon is available for individual training, to help get your team calibrated and up to date on the latest research and methodology on autism assessment and treatment, and/or for consultation on specific clients or issues.
The Autism Center for Children is committed to training future professionals. We have established a formal intensive practicum for future behavior analysts in the Master’s program at Georgia State University (GSU). The first wave of graduate-level practicum students started at our Center in January 2017. These students spend 20 hours/week doing intensive training in the clinic under the supervision of Dr. Crittendon. The first two have now graduated and are now Board Certified Behavior Analysts® (BCBA®). Professionals who are certified at the BCBA level are independent practitioners who provide behavior-analytic services. In addition, BCBAs supervise the work of Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts, Registered Behavior Technicians, and others who implement behavior-analytic interventions.
The Autism Center for Children is partnering with Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) to deliver its Families First Program, a series of free workshops intended for parents of young children (ages 2-5) newly diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. These monthly events are live-streamed from Vanderbilt’s main campus in Nashville, Tennessee to Woodstock, Georgia, where they are locally facilitated by Dr. Julie Crittendon and the expert staff at the Autism Center for Children.
