The SCERTS® Model is a research-based educational approach and multidisciplinary framework that directly addresses the core challenges faced by children and persons with ASD and related disabilities, and their families. SCERTS refers to Social Communication, Emotional Regulation, and Transactional Support (Prizant & Weatherby, 2005)

This two-day training will lead to a thorough understanding of the SCERTS model and provide participants with the knowledge and skills to implement the model in their classrooms. This model provides specific guidelines for helping a child become a competent and confident social communicator, while preventing problem behaviors that interfere with learning and the development of relationships.

Amy Laurent, Ph.D., OTR/L is a developmental psychologist and a registered pediatric occupational therapist. Currently in private practice, Amy specializes in the education of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and related developmental disabilities.
