Focus on Autism Initiative

Guidelines for Identification and Education of Children and Youth with Autism.

(1.5mb pdf)






starfishThe goal of SERC's Focus on Autism initiative is to provide professional development opportunities for families and educators to increase their knowledge of a wide variety of insights and approaches regarding the education of children with autism. The Focus on Autism Initiative was created as a response to findings of the Connecticut Task Force on Issues Relating to the Education of Children with Autism. The report identified some of the current best practices for educating children with autism and urged that more training opportunities be made available for families and educators.
