Parent/Educator Workshop “Autism and the IEP”
The Autism Society of the Fox Valley Presents:
Katie Berg, CESA 1 “Autism and the IEP”
Katie Berg is the ES3 State Coordinator/Trainer for the state of WI and has been educating students for the past 18 years. She began her career in the private sector at an applied behavioral analysis (ABA) company working with children on the autism spectrum. Soon afterwards, Katie earned her master’s in special education and began teaching in the public sector. As a special educator Katie supported students across a continuum of servicing models including as a self-contained teacher, resource service provider, and inclusive practitioner. Through this experience, she was able to expand her reach to students with a variety of special education needs, piquing her interest in understanding behavior output and how to best support varying individual needs. In 2012, Katie became a district wide support for students on the autism spectrum. Katie’s role expanded to provide district training on topics including IEP’s, challenging behavior and other neurological barriers to learning. She has created engaging adult classroom experiences in trainings, conferences and summits across the state and is excited to have the opportunity to share her knowledge and experience through the State Coordinator position.
Important issues to be discussed:
- DPI Autism Criteria through the CCR-IEP lens
- Using the criteria to discuss Disability Related needs
- Supports for students learning new skills within those criteria areas
- Brainstorm the most common areas of struggle for students on the spectrum
