training & capacity building

The Five Project for International Autism and Disability Support is committed to helping to strengthen the capacity of families and educational programs in China to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities, with a focus on developmental disabilities such as autism.

We do this by providing training and consultation to professionals and parents of individuals with autism in China, both in person and online. In-person training involves working directly with teachers and students at educational programs where we provide hands-on guidance in the classroom, as well as didactic instruction to teachers, focusing on evidence-based practices based on Applied Behavior Analysis. In addition, FIVE collaborates with partners in China to promote awareness about autism through large-scale lectures and awareness activities. FIVE also provides ongoing consultation to several partner organizations, many of which are located in northeast China.
