The Teaching Artist Training Institute (TATI) provides free training and arts education best practices for individuals interested in working with students on the autism spectrum. Through observational visits and professional development seminars, TATI participants learn the fundamentals of autism, pathways of communication and the therapeutic value of the arts.
“TATI rocks! Just to prove how effective it was, even with my seven years experience as a Teaching Artist, being a Special Ed. Teaching Assistant, as well as being a NYS Certified Art Teacher with a Master’s Degree, TATI filled in a lot of niches I didn’t know of or didn’t explore as much. It gave me ideas for my art and drama classes, and I learned some highly-effective classroom management techniques! I will not only utilize what I learned for my Special Ed. students, but for my mainstream students as well.”
