Autism Alabama Banner


Autism Alabama is an initiative of Special Education Services, Alabama Department of Education, to provide on-line training resources for parents and educational professionals on autism and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The Alabama Autism Task Force, Ages Six-Twenty One Subcommittee, emphasized the importance of education personnel having a clear understanding of ASD and evidence-based treatment approaches. Additionally, the subcommittee recommended that parents have access to information in order to meaningfully participate in decisions about the best treatment approaches for their child.

The information that can be accessed from this page is a resource for teachers, parents, and other stakeholders who desire to learn more about ASD and the challenges it presents. New resources, including a distance education course on autism, will be added as they become available.  

Providing access to these Web links and online training resources in no way constitutes endorsement of the content and/or of any one approach to the treatment of children with ASD.
