FATE provides “seed funding” through Project Pipeline to send teachers through comprehensive research-based training that has been demonstrated to be effective for children with autism. Teachers accepted into Project Pipeline are eligible to attend any of the workshops offered by FATE without cost to them or to their school district.
The training provided by FATE is based upon the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA). These principles can be precisely described and explained and replicated across settings and people. FATE is deeply committed to sharing this technology with special education professionals wherever there is a need. Funding is available to bring research-based training to new areas. Funding decisions are based on need, scope of impact, commitment from key staff, potential for collaboration, and willingness to share what is learned with others.
Teachers trained through this initiative have provided training and/or hands-on support for teachers throughout the U.S. and many have volunteered to share their knowledge with others in need in Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America.
If you are a professional in the field of special education working directly with children with autism in public schools please complete the Project Pipeline online application.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received and grantees will be notified within one week.
