TRAIN Pilot Program

AID in PA logo

Across Pennsylvania, there are qualified therapists prepared to support individuals who have experienced trauma. Likewise, there are therapists dedicated to supporting ID/A populations. However, there are few providers equipped to offer support through both the trauma and neurodiversity lenses.

To meet this need, TRAIN is being launched in early Fall 2021. This pilot program, developed by psychologists with diverse backgrounds in both trauma and ID/A populations, will be comprised of live webinars and self-paced learning activities which will take place over a span of 12 weeks. To provide a fully robust learning experience, there will be access to discussion boards and live supervision for additional communication with and between learners. Continuing Education (CE) credits will be provided through the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC).

Please share with any therapists you know who are currently supporting or are interested in supporting individuals with Intellectual Disability or Autism.

If you are a therapist currently supporting ID/A clients and would like to learn more about TRAIN or to be considered as part of our pilot training session, please Email us.

AID in PA is a resource collection for Pennsylvanians in the autism and intellectual disability communities. 

Thank you,
