The school-age subcommittee’s work involves the consideration of issues related to the lives of children and young adults with ages 5 through 21 and their families. Primarily, our work has focused on the provision of high quality services and programming to facilitate the best potential outcomes for individuals with ASD.  Our most recent work has focused on preparation practices for personnel working with individuals with ASD (e.g., teachers, behavioral health professionals, related services, behavior analysts).
