InterACT is an interprofessional education and clinical training program for students and community providers who want to increase their education or expertise in working with individuals with autism and related neurodiversities. Students will be able to earn a Graduate Certificate in Autism and Related Neurodiversities, and community members will be able to participate in educational programs, earn CEUs, and provide input into the education and research development in the Beaver College of Health Sciences. This program is currently being planned for full implementation in Fall 2017.
The InterACT program will begin some clinical opportunities late Fall 2016, including interprofessional assessments for diagnosing autism. Speech-language pathology is partnering with the psychology clinic at Appalachian, as well as the TEACCH program out of Asheville, and is planning diagnostic teams to start in the coming weeks.
