As you know, there is tremendous variability in both the skills and the challenges individuals with ASD experience.

Evidence-Based Practice and Autism in the Schools Educator Manual
Schools today face the challenge of providing appropriate services to a diverse and increasingly numerous student population diagnosed with ASD. In order to achieve this goal, evidence-based practice is essential in the schools.
To assist school professionals as they strive to help these students reach their potential, the National Autism Center has produced a comprehensive 245-page manual, Evidence-Based Practice and Autism in the Schools. The manual outlines relevant topics, including the current state of research findings, professional judgment and data-based clinical decision making, values and preferences of families, and capacity building. Each chapter sets a course for advancing the efforts of school systems to engage in evidence-based practice for their students on the autism spectrum.
When the manual was first published, we distributed 3,000 print copies to school systems around the country. Due to high demand, we now offer the manual on our website as a pdf, and make hard copies available for purchase.
