During our careers in education we have faced the situation that other educators face which is a lack of simple and practical tools to assess and teach students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). We are pleased to report that this situation is changing with more and more publications and products that focus on the underlying needs of students with ASD to have curriculum materials and other concepts presented in a visual and concrete manner. As specialists who support educators we have needed to create quality materials and tools that are practical, functional, easy to understand, learn, and use.
Initially Autism and Behavior Training Associates set our goal to provide high quality professional development that would allow educational staff to learn the skills and practices needed to provide effective programs for students with ASD.
Autism and Behavior Training Associates now see the need to expand our goal to provide quality publications and products that we have used successfully with student who have ASD.
