POAC offers a multitude of training opportunities throughout the state of New Jersey. Our workshops are available in full day sessions, half day sessions, evening sessions, and can be packaged as a full series. They are run in locations throughout the state during the week and on weekends in an effort to meet the varied scheduling requirements of anyone involved with teaching and caring for those with autism. All workshops have applications for a variety of developmental disabilities across varied environments. POAC’s workshops are available to parents, teachers, paraprofessionals, direct services providers, and administrators. All workshops require registration and are almost always offered with no fee to participants (any exceptions will be noted).
Pioneers in parent and teacher training, POAC has provided thousands of hours of instruction throughout New Jersey and beyond through various programs. We remain committed to giving parents and teachers of children with autism the knowledge and support necessary for their children and students to reach the fullest potential possible. Additionally, POAC strives to continually assess the current needs of our community and to respond with workshops and training to meet those needs.
