As you know, Project Access at Missouri State University is fully funded by the Department of Education to provide school districts and their staff the tools they need to serve kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The Project ACCESS Community of Practice is a web-based networking site for those who serve students with autism and related developmental disabilities. Through it, members are able to share information, ideas, and network with others. In addition, participants are able to take advantage of opportunities to "ask and expert." Archived "Ask the Expert" trainings are listed below:
Joanie Armstrong interviews Dr. Edna Smith on the most frequently asked questions received at Project ACCESS.
Project ACCESS autism resource specialist Julie Donnelly offers seven tips for supporting students with high-functioning autism/Asperger's syndrome.
Project ACCESS Autism Resource Specialist Terri Carrington responds to questions about Visual Schedules.
