Family Services School Community Tool Kit
We need your help to make sure that your school administrators know about the new School Community Tool Kit. It is designed to help school administrators talk with their staff about how students with autism can best be supported and included in the school community. The Kit includes content about the features and challenges associated with autism, the strengths possessed by students with autism, and a host of tools and strategies teachers, administrators, and other staff can use to foster an accepting learning environment. The School Community Tool Kit is available at www.autismspeaks.org/school.
Participate In Online Parent Study
This study is designed to gather information about the perceptions and experiences of parents and caregivers, with a specific interest in their levels of satisfaction with regards to their child's pediatrician. This study will make it possible to define the factors that are associated with increased satisfaction with pediatricians and identify regional differences in knowledge, actions, care or support by pediatricians. We hope that the responses to this survey will provide a better understanding of ways that pediatricians can better serve parents and their children that have been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
