Staff of the Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) are assuming new roles.
Pablo Juarez, M.Ed., has been named administrative director of TRIAD Professional Development and Training. This team provides educational training and consultation to teachers, psychologists, administrative staff and school districts throughout Tennessee and the region.
LaTamara Garrett has been named program coordinator for Early Childhood Training, which includes contracts with the Tennessee Department of Education to conduct regional training for early childhood educators.
Whitney Loring, Psy.D., is now program coordinator of Families First, a free training series for parents of young children with autism. For the past five years, Families First has provided this training to more than 1,500 family members across our region.
“With the ever growing need for autism services, we need training leaders who can translate cutting-edge science into sustainable educational practice,” said Zachary Warren, Ph.D., TRIAD director and associate professor of Pediatrics, Psychiatry and Special Education.
“We are very fortunate to have leaders that understand this critical need and have the vision to realize training programs of true meaning and impact.”
