Dr. Bopp presented a brief overview of the status of the CIRCA training initiative, which is supported with funds from the BC Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD). The goal of the initiative is to develop autism-related training materials and resources to support a wide range of professionals, paraprofessionals and families throughout the province. The presentation described the results of a co-design process used to develop a 3-year strategic plan and provided a research review on best practices for online versus face-to-face training that will be taken into consideration as new materials are developed.
