LAUSD Selects CARD to Provide Behavioral Health Training To 6,000+ Staff

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the second largest school district in the nation, has selected the Center for Autism and Related Disorders’  CARD eLearning™ program to provide the district with intense training in evidence-based principles of behavioral health treatment for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).  Over 6,000 LAUSD teachers and support staff will participate in the training.

CARD eLearning™ is a 20-hour online training course designed to facilitate effective intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders by equipping users with foundational knowledge in ABA. The training consists of nine video-based training modules which feature online note taking, quizzes, a final exam, and a certificate of course completion.

LAUSD currently has approximately 919,000 students, including adult education.

“We are honored to become partners with the Los Angeles Unified School District. We’re confident that the district’s teachers and their support staff will acquire valuable knowledge about teaching skills to children with autism spectrum disorders using CARD eLearning,” says CARD Founder and Chief Executive Officer Doreen Granpeesheh, PhD, BCBA-D.  “This program provides a strong foundational skillset and facilitates the work of professionals who design and direct treatment plans for children with autism spectrum disorders.”

About the Los Angeles Unified School District:

Los Angeles Unified School District’s (LAUSD) mission is to believe in the equal worth and dignity of all students and is committed to educate all students to their maximum potential. LAUSD is the largest (in terms of number of students) public school system in California. It is the 2nd largest public school district in the United States. It is the second largest employer in Los Angeles County, after the county government. In enrollment breakdown by ethnic group, 73% of its students were of Hispanic origin and 11% of its students were African American. White American students comprise 9% of the student population, while Asian American students comprise 4%; students of Filipino origin form 2% of the student population. Native Americans and Pacific Islanders together are less than 1%. The school district consists of Los Angeles and all or portions of several adjoining Southern California cities. LAUSD has its own police force, the Los Angeles School Police Department, which was established in 1948 to provide police services for LAUSD schools. The LAUSD enrolls a third of the preschoolers in Los Angeles County, and operates almost as many buses as the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
