AutismOnline Now Offering Autism Resources and Videos for Free

The following research-based, high-quality products now available for free viewing include:
  • Autism Vision: Creating Classroom Connections for Children and Adolescents with Autism
    Autism Vision: Creating Classroom Connections for Children with Autism facilitates social inclusion of children (ages 8 to 15) with autism in general education elementary and middle school classrooms. Using the accompanying facilitator's guides, these programs can be implemented by a parent, teacher, or other advocate to help neurotypical peers understand autism and learn how to treat their classmate with autism as a friend.
  • Autism Vision: Creating Autism Awareness in Elementary School Staff
    The purpose of Autism Vision: Creating Autism Awareness in Elementary School Staff is to inform paraeducators (i.e., one-on-one aides) and other noneducator elementary school staff about autism and teach them skills needed to more effectively interact with students with ASD. This program includes a video, facilitator's guide, and training participant workbook.
  • Supporting Transition in Vocation and Education (STRIVE)
    As an innovative and skill-building resource, STRIVE supports adolescents and young adults (ages 16 to 21) with autism in making decisions about where to apply for college, how to apply, how to manage college interviews, and how to prepare for the transition to college life. The program includes a facilitator's guide, student workbook, and an audiovisual program.
  • Caring for Caregivers: For Groups of Caregivers of Young Children with ASD
    Facilitated by a professional or paraprofessional in a support group format, this program is designed to empower caregivers of individuals with ASD across the lifespan and reduce caregiver burden, stress, anxiety, and depression. This program includes a facilitator's guide, participant workbooks, and audiovisual programs for caregivers of young children, school-aged children, adolescents, young adults, and older adults.
