Indiana Resource Center for Autism Service Options

In a time of limited resources and increased expectations, the Institute’s Indiana Resource Center for Autism understands the necessity to be able to customize a range of services to meet your specific needs. The ultimate goal is to work in collaboration with schools and/or districts to create sustainable and positive change through a combination of coaching and training strategies.  Schools/districts receive support in implementing evidence-based practices (EBP) or strategies which focus on student outcomes. These options integrate well with other school-based initiatives, such as Response to Intervention (RTI) and School-wide Positive Behavior Support (PBIS).

The Center offers a wide variety of service options in:

- Training
- Best Practice
- Coaching
- Consulting

These faculty and staff may be program coordinators, core function directors, associate directors, or new directors.
