Abstract

The power of the Internet to reach individuals across great geographic distances and to provide flexible, timely access to research-validated materials is revolutionizing the design of professional development. Creating strategies for linking technology-based instruction with onsite, application-based learning has great potential for teaching professionals how to better support and teach children social and communication skills in a variety of school, home, and community settings. This article will describe a higher education led statewide training system on positive behavior support and person-centered planning that integrates online instruction with field-based strategies that ensure professionals are actively applying information within a supportive learning environment.
