Learning Independence from CA There’s so much I have grasped over the years of being…
Continuing education and professional development foster engagement and drive results. In order to improve the quality of direct services and advance systems level work, we offer everything from public training to virtual learning and an annual conference. All of these offerings aim to increase awareness, enhance knowledge and evolve practices.
ADOS-2 is the latest version of what was already considered the gold standard for observational assessment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ADOS-2 can be used to evaluate almost anyone suspected of having ASD, from non-verbal toddlers to verbally fluent adults.
CA offers this new, progressive approach of teaching clinical professionals to diagnose autism using Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2) through virtual workshops. We recognize that confidence and expertise come from practice and experience, so in addition to a three-day workshop, this program includes one follow-up coaching session. Because of the hands-on, interactive nature of these workshops, participation is limited.

For many years Commonwealth Autism ran our own highly successful preschool program with 5 sites across the Richmond area. Our vision at CA is to create a more inclusive Virginia by eradicating gaps in services for the neurodiverse. We created the Preschool Inclusion Program to fulfill this mission by teaching childcare centers across the Commonwealth how to incorporate our inclusive intervention module.
Why? Because there is a great need for inclusive, sustainable preschools:
CA provides consultative services to breakdown barriers and help preschools tap into additional funding sources.
Shared Services are membership organizations that allow members to share back-office services such as accounting, payroll, and human resources. The goal of Shared Service is to allow organizations to focus more on their mission or business and by focusing less on business functions. Doing so helps them save time, effort and money that they can redirect to employee salaries and benefits, professional training, classroom supplies, etc. The services offer may include:
We customize packages and prices based on the scope of shared services you choose to use. Over time, our services dramatically lower your administrative and overhead expenses. So, ultimately, our fee will be lower than the cost of your own staff providing these same business functions.
Membership is open to legally operating licensed (or licensing-exempted) non-profits and for-profit organizations that share a commitment to the mission and vision of shared services.
Our Autism Resource Database includes everything from camps and inclusive preschools for children with autism to training opportunities for licensed professionals.
