School Services

Are you a teacher who is struggling to help a student on the autism spectrum? Are you a principal who wants to provide training for your staff? Are you a school district who doesn’t have anyone qualified to conduct effective FBAs?

Chrysalis Autism Services offers educational consulting services ranging from individual student programming, through full program development; in addition to professional development and staff training. This service is available to schools and agencies. All services can be customized to meet the needs of the child and the teacher.

Functional Behavior Assessment: Functional behavioral assessment is generally considered to be a problem-solving process for addressing student problem behavior. The purpose of an FBA is to determine the function(s) of an individual’s targeted behavior(s). The function of a behavior is the purpose that the person is attempting to achieve through the behavior. When designing an intervention, thorough knowledge of the function(s) of a behavior is invaluable. A consultant from Chrysalis Autism Services can complete a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) by doing an observation of the child in his school environment. The consultant will then work from the results of that observation and assessment to provide recommendations.

Professional Development Workshops and Staff Training: Chrysalis Autism Services can work with you to develop training opportunities tailored to the strengths and needs of your school’s faculty. Workshops can be as short as 1 hour or as long as 3 days. Workshops can also be followed up by visits to classrooms to answer questions specific to the needs of the teacher and his/her students. Topics for workshops can include but are not limited to:

  • Autism 101
  • Asperger’s Syndrome 101
  • How to Use Rewards in My Classroom
  • How to Manage Behavior for Kids Who are Non-Verbal
  • What is Task Analysis and How Can I use It?
  • Language Acquisition… I’m a teacher not a speech therapist but I have several students who have limited language!?!?!
  • Communication Issues: The Power of Communication for Individuals With ASD
  • Navigating the Social Maze: Supports and Interventions for Individuals with ASD
  • How to Effectively Work with “Problem” Parents

Consultation: Consulting can help you on a project basis with specific needs like observational assesments for an individual child, a behavioral management plan, classroom environment recommendations, social skills interactions and more.
