Regional Communities of Learning

Regions will receive technical assistance through the development and facilitation of Communities of Learning in Autism (CoLAs). Communities of Learning provide communities the opportunity to share information and experiences. This allows members to learn from each other, and have an opportunity to develop personally and professionally.

What happens in a CoLA?

VCU-ACE facilitates Communities of Learning in Autism within each Superintendent's Region. A VCU-ACE Technical Assistance Associate works with regional representatives from the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) TTAC's and school division based leaders within each region to build such learning communities. Communities of Learning are tailored to the needs of the region based upon the areas targeted for growth by the members of the group. The members of the Communities of Learning are comprised of the region's leaders in service delivery for students with autism. This includes autism specialists, instructional specialists, master teachers and individuals in administrative or quasi-administrative roles who provide in-division consultation and support to teachers with caseloads and/or classrooms.
