Symposium #488
CE Offered: BACB
CANCELED: SASSI-R: Promoting Sustainable Ethical Practices for International Centres
Monday, May 28, 2018
3:00 PM–3:50 PM
Marriott Marquis, Marina Ballroom G
Area: CSS/TBA; Domain: Applied Research
CE Instructor: Emily Boshkoff, M.A.
Chair: Michelle L. Zube (Caldwell University)
Discussant: Emily Boshkoff (Global Autism Project)
Abstract: The Site Assessment Survey for Sustainable Interventions (SASSI) was created out of a need for standardized evaluation of centres serving individuals with autism. This tool has 145 targets across three main domains; Clinical Services (CS), Administrative (Ad), and Outreach & Advocacy (OA). The assessment will be completed by both a Global Autism Project clinician and the clinical director of the international partner and will be informed by observations and indepth discussions. At the conclusion of the assessment, a skill-tracking graph is completed which represent the current level of achievement of the centre. Another SASSI-R will be completed 6 months later as a means to measure effectiveness of partnership and areas of need to become a centre of excellence. As an international organization that focuses on training professionals working with individuals with autism, the Global Autism Project felt strongly that such an evaluation should be a part of the training procedures. In order to accomplish this mission, we needed to assess progress among our international service partners in several areas of both clinical and business practices related to organizations serving individuals with autism. (1) participants include 7 partner countries who have completed the assessment in July and August 2017 and a re-assessment in February 2018, (2) completion of the assessment is the procedure of this work, and (3) results of the training practices of the Global Autism Project will be quantatively known in February.
