    PACT training is suitable for professionals (speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, specialist teachers) with a minimum of 2 years post-graduate experience of working with children who have autism and their families.

    Levels 1 & 2

    The first level of training, PACT pre-course e-learning, consists of an introductory Powerpoint and 8 videos with tasks to be completed by the trainee. Each trainee receives an answer sheet to compare their answers. The pre-course e-learning takes approximately 6 hours to complete in the trainees own time before they attend the 2 day face to face training.

    The second level of training (pre-course 2-day live training and post course work) is suitable for professionals who will implement PACT in clinical practice. This 2-day training is in person on October 25-26, 2018 in New Jersey.

    Level 3

    The third level of training will be available online. The PACT professionals lead training (for those who want to become trainers and/or conduct research and establish fidelity), suitable for more experienced professionals involves implementing PACT with more clinical cases and supervising other PACT trainees.
