Which consists of workshops that are scheduled throughout the state on a variety of subjects and several websites that offer on-line training opportunities related to autism spectrum disorders.
Autism Connections App
This app allows families in Kansas and Nebraska to locate services and resources related to autism in their communities.
Services and resources can be searched according to zip code and category, including:
Early Intervention (Ages 0-3)
School (Ages 3-21)
Community Based Services
Users can assign ratings to each service and resource and designate their favorites.
Prompting is used to increase desired behaviors and skill acquisition. When delivering prompts, the instructor should be mindful of the student’s learning level and fading considerations. Reinforcement should occur after a correct response and should be contingent upon the level of performance independence desired.
The Nebraska Autism Spectrum Disorders Network and partners have created these strategies and approaches for helping people on the autism spectrum.
