IRCA staff respond with accurate, evidence-based, and timely information to meet the needs of individuals across the autism spectrum and across the lifespan, their families, and the professionals who support them. We have a multidisciplinary staff who come from a variety of backgrounds including education, speech-language pathology, social work, psychology, special education administration, applied behavior analysis, early childhood education, and family members of those on the spectrum.
I feel much more prepared to work with students with autism since completing the training with IRCA. I learned practical and effective techniques that are easy to implement. I no longer feel apprehensive about working with students who have been identified with autism.- Second Grade General Education Teacher
