Connecting FACES: Piloting a Digital Learning Environment for the FACES Curriculum

The purpose of ​Connecting FACES​ was to translate one 3-hour FACES session into a digital learning environment (i.e., online module) to support parents, educators and service providers of minority children with autism. To develop the​ module​, the design team curated from existing high-quality resources, including the existing FACES program, and filled in any content gaps with custom-created resources (i.e., video recordings of Dr. Pearson). The ​module contains foundational readings and resources, examples from the field, direct connections to practice and opportunities to engage with peers (e.g., discussion boards).

This project was funded by a Catalyst Grant from the Friday Institute and NC State College of Education.
