Education Updates and Resources
Education Information from ASNC (Autism Society of NC)
- Strategies for Managing an IEP at Home or in School (pdf)
- ASNC Blog - Best place to look for current issues and tips. Searchable by topic and new content posted weekly. Because of the rapid changes around school, challenges related to COVID and stay at home, and the pace of policy change, we may not be able to update every single webpage quickly enough able to keep up with all the latest info: the blog helps with critical topics. We released two new blogs on school issues at the end of July.
- Pre-recorded Webinars (more than 40 and growing) on popular topic areas: school, behavior, adulthood, newly diagnosed info, and general topics. Watch anytime. No cost to view.
School focused ones are in the second section. These are not necessarily COVID focused, but the ones recorded in the last 5 months may mention it.
- Live Workshops via our Workshop Calendar: Typically done in a mix of in-person or online, our workshops have temporarily moved to entirely online formats. No cost to participate.
