CCEI offers new users the trial course SPN101: Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorders at no cost during April, in recognition of "National Autism Awareness Month." The term autism spectrum disorder (ASD) refers to a group of developmental brain disorders exhibiting a variety of symptoms and levels of impairment. ASD can affect a child's ability to learn, socialize, and communicate with others. SPN101 introduces ASD and the characteristics of children who are diagnosed with various disorders within this group. The course also offers classroom strategies that support students with various types of ASD, as well as ways in which educators can support and work with families.
