Popis Autism in the classroom is hard for teachers to deal with, especially as many children on the spectrum have accompanying challenging behavior. Giving accurate information about autism and behavior to teachers and teaching them to adapt their curriculum using good autism practice has been shown necessary to be effective in improving children’s education. However, in some parts of Europe, such education is extremely limited or non-existent. The aim of this article is to present initial research of the multinational project funded by Erasmus+ program that has been developed to establish teacher education training program in six European countries based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) method. Methodology: To ensure that the training is relevant and appropriate a survey was created out in Autumn 2020 to identify the areas of training that they felt most important. A total of 223 respondents from seven countries took part in the survey: Denmark, Italy, Spain, Macedonia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, and Croatia. Data were evaluated with descriptive approach. Results: Most of the respondents (60.4%) did not receive any training in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) during university studies and more than half of the respondents (53.1%) have never heard of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Conclusion: Teachers agreed that they need additional education. There was no wide difference between countries regarding the content that they felt important to be included in the training curriculum. Six procedures were suggested for training: Behavior management strategies, Functions of behavior, Using reinforcement in the classroom, Extinction, Token economies and Group contingencies.
