IASD Dream Study Group Program
Welcome to the IASD Dream Study Group program (DSGP)! For the first time in IASD's history, members and non-members alike can join Dream Study Groups, hosted by our Regional Representatives.
Participants will initially gain access to the Dream Study Enrollment Commons, where access to our Foundation Courses, the Tea Room forum, and a library of resources can be found. Once a member of the Commons, each participant will be invited into a hosted Study Group, once one becomes available, with its own private area that will include a forum for the group members as well as access to the Study Group Program's online booking calendar.
- Groups will be conducted online via Zoom, allowing members who are geographically dispersed to meet and get to know each other via the most popular videoconferencing platform in the world.
- Assignment to groups will be facilitated by our DSGP Administrator, who will work with members and hosts to get the groups started.
- The cost for participation in the DSGP will include:
- Access to the Commons.
- Access to our Four Foundation Series Courses, linked to the Commons.
- A one-year membership in a hosted Study Group that commences once admitted to a group.
The enrollment costs will be posted soon, but will probably be $50-75 for nonmembers per year.
For now, please complete our Group Intake Survey if you are interested. Once we receive your survey in formation, the following steps will follow:
- Once the Program is ready to start, our Program Admin will invite interested individuals to enroll in the Dream Study Enrollment Commons, after which you will have access to the Foundation Courses.
- If you haven't already taken our Group Intake Survey, you will be asked to do so in order to assist us in pairing you with a study group.
- You will be able to take the Foundation Courses, and interact with other DSGP participants in the Tea Room, which is the Commons forum.
- Then one of our group hosts will then contact you and provide an access code to a hosted group.
- Your access code will provide access to your unique Study Group area here on this site as long as you are a member of the group.
- You will be free to participate for up to a year before re-enrolling in the Program.
- If, by chance, your group does not meet for the entire year, or your availability does not coincide with your group's meeting times, you will be free to request re-assignment to another ongoing group through our DSGP Admin.
- At the end of your subscription, you will be notified a month ahead of time in order to renew without a break in your Dream Study Group Program membership.
