Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Graduate students from diverse disciplines participated in an online course to prepare professionals to serve individuals with ASD. Three years of data revealed measurable gains in interprofessional competencies, including values and ethics, roles and responsibilities, communication, and teamwork. ASD knowledge achievements were assessed quantitatively and qualitatively. The presenters are committed to overcoming interprofessional education barriers and to advancing interprofessional, team-based best practice.
