OCALI offers introductory training on educational identification of students with ASD


The process to identify and serve students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) requires a well-trained and experienced evaluation team. From creating an effective team, administering quality assessments and accurately interpreting findings to communicating with parents and families — it is critical to have the knowledge and skills to best support students with ASD.
