Community of Practice (CoP) in Autism in Rhode Island

Sherlock Home | C.G.S in Autism Education

Purpose

A community of practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a common interest in something they do, meet on a regular basis and seek to improve their practice (Wenger & Traynor, 2015). The goal of the CoP in Autism in RI is to bring diverse educators into a working relationship around a common interest in autism spectrum disorders to share information and improve practice. The CoP meets 3 to 4 times a year at Rhode Island College and hosts a variety of speakers who have presented on topics such as inclusion, social skills instruction, improving outcomes, and addressing challenging behavior. While the majority of group members are educators (teachers, related service providers, administrators, etc.), we also welcome individuals with disabilities, family members, community providers, clinicians, students and any other interested stakeholders.
