Teacher Education Programs
A Model for the Support of Interns and Beginning Teachers in Special Education
The author describes two special education schools in Tel Aviv, Israel, whose students are on the autistic spectrum, where the head of the induction team (the author) and the principals of the schools resolved to bolster the continuity between the theoretical college studies and the beginning teachers' work with the students on the ASD continuum. Instead of holding a general induction workshop in college that accompanied the trainee in his/her first steps in the schools, the arena was transferred to the school itself, thereby creating a partnership with the school, with the local authority, and with the policy makers. The workshops provided the teachers who teach this population with professional support and empowerment and met their specific needs.
