CARD eLearning: An opportunity for Caregivers of Children with Autism



The Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) has developed and launched CARD eLearning, a web-based program that provides in-depth training on the principles and procedures of applied behavior analysis (ABA). CARD eLearning is made up of nine training modules which take approximately 40 hours to complete. The training is video-based and has online features including note taking, quizzes, a final exam, and a certification of completion. CARD eLearning is self-guided, so users can set their own pace for completing the training. Additionally, because the program is web-based, users can access eLearning anytime, anywhere at their convenience.

Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh and other CARD research and development staff have conducted preliminary research on CARD eLearning that suggested it may be an effective tool for training behavioral therapists. The study evaluated the effectiveness of eLearning as compared to traditional lecture-style instruction in training newly hired therapists. Knowledge of ABA significantly increased for both groups, with the traditional training group scoring slightly higher than the eLearning group.

Currently, CARD researchers are conducting a further study to evaluate the effectiveness of eLearning in training caregivers of children with autism. All participants are given free access to CARD eLearning. Participants are still being recruited for this study, so all caregivers of children with autism interested in eLearning are encouraged to contact Jina Jang at (818) 345-2345 extension 321, or j.jang@centerforautism.com.

The following quote is a testimonial from one participant who recently completed CARD eLearning:

“Over the past year or so, I have taken a couple 2-4 hour ABA classes, but none even came close to giving me the all inclusive ‘picture’ of the ABA method that your online classes provided.”

    I was excited enough to post a thought :-) I do have 2 questions for you if
    you don’t mind. Is it only me or do a few of the remarks appear like left by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to keep up with you.
    Would you make a list all of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Some reasoning leads us to the idea that some kids are predisposed to violence more
    so than others. Therefore, if you don’t have any experience in the IT market,
    how could you possibly know what a particular IT employee fills their day with.

    you realize that blaming and fussing with others won’t fix the disc.

  15. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a
    way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?

    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  16. Now, I’m a complete newbie (and dummie), so please help – I like a few features from Dynamic Drive, but how EXACTLY to insert them? Where do I go after I login into my Control Panel on Joomla?. I know how to copy-paste, but details? Please? I’m just afraid to delete something necessary and break the whole thing down, as I have never done that before. Any help greatly appreciated, or just give me a link where this is properly explained in Simple English, thanks!.
