Project ACCESS Professional Development Workshops

Please contact us at 866-481-3841 or projectaccess@missouristate.edu if you are interested in any of the following:

  • Most of these workshops are part of our Autism Educator Academy which is online and offered three times each year, during the Fall, Spring, and Summer. Not all of the academy workshops are available in-person in all regions of the state (but all are available in an online format). 
  • If you need a customized training to be delivered in-person, via Zoom, or online for a district PD day or for any other reason we will work with you!
  • We also offer one-year long (Project ACCESS Autism Support Team) and two-year long (Project ACCESS Autism Credential) intense training programs that qualify for graduate credit.
