Training 

 

The OASIS Provider Training Program is a unique training program launched in April of 2008 that is major component of the Kansas Center for Autism Research and Training (K-CART) at the University of Kansas. The OASIS Provider Training Program trains professionals, paraprofessionals, family members and others to provide services to people with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families if they meet other additional qualifications. The OASIS Provider Training Program gives trainees a basic understanding of evidence-based strategies to increase learning and decrease behaviors that interfere with learning to improve the functional skills and social-communicative ability of children and youth with ASD and other developmental disabilities and their families.
