Local Teams Trained in Autism Spectrum Disorders

Below is a list of school or district teams across Indiana that have gone through 6 days of extensive training between 1995-2011 conducted by the Indiana Resource Center for Autism. The primary goal of this training is to build local capacity to establish and implement proactive and positive programming that reflects evidence-based practices for students across the autism spectrum. To date, 376 teams have been involved in this training covering 121 districts.  This is an impressive list and shows districts’ strong commitment to effectively educating students on the autism spectrum.  Some districts have trained multiple teams. In each district, the status of these teams differs. Some teams have continued to flourish; while others have disbanded. If you are a family member or professional living in an area in which a team has been trained, we recommend that you contact your local director of special education for information on the status of their team, the name of the team leader, and to determine how they can assist in your situation.  Some districts employ autism coaches/leaders/mentors.  These individuals can also provide tremendous assistance. You can find an updated list of the autism leaders on our website at

In addition to these teams, it is important to note that other school districts have gone through training either through the IRCA or through other organizations. If you are the parent of a son/daughter with an autism spectrum disorder, contact your local director of special education to determine who has been trained in your area and the type of training received.

The team training is offered each year. Applications are sent in the spring to each local director of special education inviting participation. If you want more information concerning the training or application process or if your school district has mistakenly not been listed, do not hesitate to call Dr. Cathy Pratt at (812) 855-
