Cadre members are nominated by SELPAs, Regional Centers, and Family Resource/ Family Empowerment Centers. They receive training through our annual summit so that they can provide local training, implementation coaching, cross agency collaboration, and dissemination of the EBPs at the local level. Cadre members have access to the NPDC-ASD and CAPTAIN training materials and will assist with the statewide distribution of the EBPs by providing support and training locally.
