FATE provides “seed funding” through Project Pipeline to send teachers through comprehnsive research-based training that has been proven to effective for children with autism. Teachers accepted into the program are eligible to attend any of the workshops offered by FATE without cost to them or their school district.
The training provided by FATE is based upon the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA). These principles can be precisely described and explained and replicated across settings and people. FATE is deeply committed to sharing this technology with special edcuation professionals wherever there is a need. Funding is available to bring research-based training to new areas. Funding decisions are based on need; scope of impact; commitment from key staff; potential for collaboration; and willingness to share what was learned.
Teachers trained through this initiative have provided training and/or hands-on support to teachers throughout the U.S. as well as in Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America.
