Opportunities for Educators

We are looking for schools and educators to participate in the following study:

Modular Approach to Autism Programs in Schools (MAAPS)


We are recruiting schools and educators nationally to participate in a research study evaluating effects of MAAPS. Please review the brief overview of MAAPS below. If you would like more information, please contact Dr. Kait Gould, the study coordinator, or Dr. Cynthia Anderson, the Principal Investigator.

MAAPS is a coaching framework for schools intended to help support students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The feasibility of MAAPS was proven in prior research and now we are hoping to learn more about how effective MAAPS is for improving student outcomes. In MAAPS, a teacher, other educators, parents, and the student form a team and work together to prioritize goals and select interventions. Then, a coach works with the teacher to help make the intervention fit the student and classroom, and then supports the teacher in implementing the intervention.

You can learn more about MAAPS by watching the video below or by viewing our fliers for educators (view PDF) and parents (view PDF). If you would like to learn more about the study and possibly participating, you can contact the study coordinator, Dr. Kait Gould at kgould@mayinstitute.org.
