Autism and Education: Home

This guide addresses autistic children's behavioral, communicative and educational needs.

Introduction

This LibGuide is to direct students at Indiana University Northwest to resources on autism.  Most students go to education resources.  However, there are many other resources that may be helpful and worth investigating.  The resources are grouped by broad subjects.
