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.

Please contact us if there is an item that you would like to recommend that we add to our Autism Tool Kit.
