Autism Internet Modules The modules, available at no cost, have the potential to positively impact the educational, family, vocational, and medical communities - on a local and worldwide basis - and may alter the ways in which ASD training occurs. Through these modules we seek to promote a greater understanding of ASD and to promote achievement, full participation, respect, and equality of persons with ASD. In short, through the use of the World Wide Web, the overall outcomes of this project will be (a) increased ASD awareness; and (b) training and assistance at no cost to the educational, vocational, and medical communities and families.
