Hi everyone -- I thought I'd create a discussion thread on Autism resources you've found useful. I'll start with a free webinar I just came across: Date: August 11, 2010 Time: 2:00 pm EDT / 11:00 am PST Duration: One hour (15 mins for Q&A) School districts across the U.S. struggle with the combination of two harsh realities: an increasing intensity of budget cuts for 2010-11, and complying with the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) which guarantees "free appropriate" education to all disabled students including the growing number of students with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In addition, parents are pressuring schools to either comply with the IDEA or face legal action. This webinar will focus on how public school administrators and special education directors looking for innovative ways to save costs, while still providing a quality evidence-based education for students with autism, can utilize low-cost web-based technology that offers curriculum planning, staff training and data tracking & reporting. Participants in this webinar will learn how to: * Equip teachers and paraprofessionals with best-practice tools, * Save money by eliminating unnecessary costs relating to training, * Meet the needs of increasing numbers of students with autism using existing or declining resources.
