Tools and Resources to Support Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the Classroom, at Home, and in the Community
There is not just one type of autism. Because autism is a spectrum disorder, each child with autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges. Additionally, the ways they learn, think, and problem-solve can vary widely.
