Earlier this week, the SRT team conducted a training workshop on Reciprocal Imitation Training (RIT) at Skagit Preschool and Resource Center (SPARC). Attendees learned about the theory behind RIT, as well as how it’s used in practice. The very next day providers returned for another workshop on the Screening Tool for Autism in Toddlers (STAT). The attendees were a wonderful mix of early intervention providers, family resource coordinators, speech and occupational therapists, and others, who brought a wide range of perspectives. During the second half of both trainings, attendees got hands-on experience with the help of some playful volunteers! Next week we will complete our Skagit County trainings with a workshop on the online M-CHAT-R/F at Skagit Pediatrics.
