Association of University Centers on Disabilities Through its members, The Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) is a resource for local, state, national, and international agencies, organizations, and policy makers concerned about people living with developmental and other disabilities and their families. All of our member programs have unique strengths that they share with each other and the greater disability community. Some of our members are exemplary educators. They train professional leaders, individuals with disabilities, and family members in areas such as early care and education, primary health care, special education, and innovative housing and employment programs. Other members excel in basic and applied research, model demonstration programs, systemic reform, and policy analysis. Because these programs work collaboratively, innovations from one program can be rapidly implemented in communities throughout the country, thus affecting more lives than any one program could touch. By working together, programs engage in significant research that informs national policy and best practices. The network emphasizes national and international implementation of innovations in disability-related education, health care, and supports and services. It offers leadership on major social problems affecting all people with disabilities or special health needs. Website
Assuring the Family's Role on the Early Intervention Team This paper is a synthesis of practices and ideas for explaining procedural safeguards to families, which assure that families are fully informed in ways that support their role in the early intervention process. The authors solicited information about practices and ideas for explaining procedural safeguards to families from early childhood projects funded by the Office of Special Education Programs of the U.S. Department of Education and from the state lead agencies for Part C. The paper includes a step-by-step model of explaining procedural safeguards that parallels the early intervention process. The authors intend to explore the implications of procedural safeguards for families, but not to analyze the Part C safeguards themselves. The paper has been developed for state Part C leaders, service providers, families, family advocates, and especially for those people who are involved in explaining procedural safeguards to families.

Autism Asperger Publishing Company The mission of the Autism Asperger Publishing Company (AAPC) is to be the first source for practical solutions related to autism, Asperger Syndrome, and other pervasive developmental disorders. They are an independent publisher, targeting professionals and parents alike. They strive to offer publications at affordable prices so that important resources will not be off limits to anyone with an interest in the autism spectrum. They take pride in offering books that provide practical solutions for individuals with an autism spectrum disorder as well as parents, teachers or others working or living with an individual with an autism spectrum disorder. In addition to autism books they offer videos and other interactive products. They have recently expanded their titles of books and resources on social skills and sensory integration dysfunction due to the importance of these areas for individuals on the autism spectrum and the scarcity of resources in these areas. Whether you need information about an autism spectrum disorder or social skills or sensory integration, they offer books, resources, and conferences of the highest caliber with a practical focus.

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.
