What We Do
The AEA 267 Autism Resource Team provides consultative support to AEA 267 building support staff, local district/building staff, parents, and others involved in supporting children and adolescents with autism. Consultation centers around responding to questions/concerns involved in programming for the student. It typically involves reviewing school records, interviewing staff, and observation of the student. A meeting is then held and a written report follows which is directed to respond to those questions/concerns presented to the team.
Other AEA 267 Autism Resource Team activities involve coordinating and providing staff training and information on Autism.
