A Message from Dr. Yeager
Welcome to our new website. As we try to improve our ability to connect with you we are also in the process of refining and redefining who TEAAM Autism is and what we do. There are many changes on the horizon for us here at TEAAM Autism. This new website will allow us to inform you of those changes in a more effective and efficient manner.
One of the changes that you will notice immediately is that you can now access all of TEAAM at a single point of entry, TEAAM.org. Our other addresses will all bring you to that site. Now all of our programs, including our summer camp programs, will be accessed at TEAAM.org. It is important to us that you understand that TEAAM Autism is much more than a summer camp. As a matter of fact, the programs at Center Ridge Outpost are just a small part of what we do year around. We are involved in helping schools and agencies better meet the needs of persons and families that are affected by Autism. Not only will www.TEAAM.org be more user friendly, our presence on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter is now growing by the day.
In-line with our commitment to helping families identify community-based opportunities, TEAAM Autism has recently become very involved in the Cosplay community. Through our website you will be able to locate TEAAM endorsed events where we will be and can assist you and your family enjoy the Cosplay events. As it turns out, this area of entertainment is one that many autistic people have already found and enjoy immensely. We have been able to connect with many of our friends with autism at the conventions. I encourage you to try out these very accepting events with your family.
TEAAM Autism is also embarking on a new training format that helps prepare autistic people, their families and service providers for planning a meaningful future. Our team of professionals have worked tirelessly to develop a wonderful training program that includes: Autism 101, Dynamic Behavioral Education Strategies, Social Skills for Work and Life, and our Vanguard Learning System. We have also entered into a partnership with the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) identifying TEAAM as the “go to” source for training to achieve the Certified Autism Specialist credential.
I am proud of what TEAAM has meant to so many since its beginnings in 1999. I am excited about our future and what we will mean to so many as we move forward with new and innovative programs and trainings. We hope to see you at all TEAAM events.
