The Autism & Low-Incidence Coaching Team (ACT) is a job-embedded professional development program for building the capacity of educators to serve students with autism and low-incidence disabilities. Low-incidence disabilities include: multiple disabilities, hearing impairment, orthopedic impairment, visual impairment, deaf-blindness, deafness, other health impairments (major), and traumatic brain injury. 


Services must be requested by a representative of the school district in which the student lives by contacting the Montgomery County Educational Service Center- Regional Center at (937) 236-9965.

ACT services include, but are not limited to:


  • Onsite coaching of educational team members (teacher, IS, OT, SLP, counselor, paraprofessionals, special education director, principal, therapist, psychologist, etc.) in evidence based practices for individual students or classrooms. 

  • Observation and recommendations for individualized sensory, communication, instructional and behavioral support strategies

  • Professional development sessions at the MCESC Regional Center and in district

  • Participation with our A-LIST network of classrooms for observation of evidence based practices in action

  • Facilitate collaboration across educational team members to help support transfer and generalization of evidence based practices across settings
