This event is by invitation only
Join UVA President, Teresa Sullivan, Curry School of Education Dean, Bob Pianta, and Curry School faculty for an introduction to the Curry School of Education’s transformative work in Autism Research and Classroom Simulation.
UVA Center for Autism
The University of Virginia is uniquely poised to improve outcomes for Virginians affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) through the creation of a university-based center of excellence. The Curry School is stepping up to help fill this need—and more—as it leads the charge to establish a pan-University Center for Autism. We envision this center as a national model, known for the quality of research and for the creation of a replicable, scalable model of community-based service and comprehensive education for teachers and clinical professionals.

One of the biggest hurdles to becoming a successful educator is learning how to manage the behavior of students in the classroom. Real classroom settings are a critical training ground for future teachers, but they have their limitations. Live classroom performance review is often delayed by hours or even days. At Curry, we are currently piloting a groundbreaking simulation program that provides teachers-in-training with instant feedback to help them learn how to handle this challenging task—with confidence rather than trepidation—from the moment they step into a real classroom.
