Hope everyone is having a very successful school/home year.
Some of my colleagues and friends have set up a non-profit called the Academy of Pedagogical Studies (APS). The mission statement is below. In summary, one of the purposes is to conduct research on evidence-based practices (i.e., Applied Behavior Analysis, Direct Instruction, and Precision Teaching. Plus, provide scholarships to educators, parents, and/or CLMers to implement the CLM. As well as, provide scholarships for students to study evidenced-based ABA/CLM courses at West Virginia University and/or Clarion University with the intent of disseminating evidence-based practices.
If you shop at Amazon, I am requesting that you choose to support the Academy of Pedagogical Studies. Amazon will donate a certain percentage of your purchases to APS. All you have to do is sign in to your Amazon account but do it with this URL: https://smile.amazon.com when you want to purchase something. You will be asked to type in the organization to support.
Much Appreciation, Vicci
