Autism Tool Kit

The Autism Tool Kit contains resources to help children, teens, and adults with autism interact successfully at home, in school, and in the workplace.

Included in the Autism Tool Kit are downloadable PDFs and links to autism resources web sites that we have found particularly helpful.
