The RITA-T is an empirically derived, level-2 interactive measure that has been developed to screen for autism spectrum disorders in toddlers 18 to 36 months of age. Early Childhood and Health care providers can become trained to administer the RITA-T, which can be integrated into diverse settings to better screen and identify toddlers who are high risk and need further diagnostic evaluation. The screening test consist of 9 items and takes about 10 minutes to administer and score. Each of the 9 activities designed to evaluate five developmental constructs known to represent early signs of ASD in toddlers 18-36 months.

This online training program has been designed to mirror the in-person training protocol as best as possible. The content provided, requirements for certification, and time required for completion are all equal to what is offered in the live training. Efforts have been made to provide trainees with enough content to answer questions without additional support, however we understand there may be times when there are specific questions and we will answer this questions in a reasonable amount of time. It is important to note that this is an interactive screening test, and you should seek further diagnostic testing and consult your pediatrician if you have concerns for ASD.

Overview

Stroke is among the top ten causes of child mortality and may cause lifelong disability. Rapid recognition and the institution of new hyperacute treatments can improve outcomes, yet the diagnosis is often delayed or missed. 

This course was created by expert faculty from the Boston Children’s Hospital Stroke and Cerebrovascular Center to support your development as an institutional champion for improving the care of children with pediatric stroke. You will leave with an action plan for an educational or clinical practice/quality improvement intervention and a certificate of successful completion. “Pediatric Stroke Champions” utilizes highly engaging learning methods that have been proven effective in promoting long-term knowledge gains.

Course Format
This highly interactive and personalized format combines an engaging live/synchronous online workshop component with flexible asynchronous opportunities for self-directed learning and interaction with subject matter experts. This course will empower participants to become “pediatric stroke champions” who will then disseminate knowledge and practice changes back to their home institutions through developing educational resources for their teams or creating stroke rapid response pathways.

Participants will first develop core background knowledge with self-paced pre-course learning through a combination of key references in multiple media, reflection on current practice and goals, and self-assessment knowledge questions. The live/synchronous portion of the course will be interactive and discussion-based with case examples, small group exercises, and panel discussions with faculty subject matter experts. Following the course, participants will continue to engage with faculty in a community of practice as they return to their home institutions to implement their action plans and consolidate their learning through periodic knowledge checks.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize the presenting signs and symptoms of possible pediatric stroke, particularly in high-risk populations such as children with sickle cell disease or congenital heart disease
  2. Initiate optimal evaluation, management, and possible referral of suspected pediatric stroke in response to presentations in various locations and contexts, including in-hospital, out-of-hospital, and emergency care
  3. Demonstrate awareness of long-term management and outcomes of pediatric stroke
  4. Partner with colleagues and systems at their home institution to raise awareness of pediatric stroke and plan responses to possible stroke presentations
