Welcome to the Autism Department                 

Autism is complex developmental disability that typically appear's before age three. It is a neurological disorder that affects the functioning of the brain in areas of communication and social interaction. Although the characteristics might be the same, each person is very unique. Autism is a spectrum disorder whose characteristics can present themselves in a wide variety of combinations from mild to severe. People use different terms to describe persons within the spectrum, such as: autistic tendencies, high or low-functioning autism, or autism spectrum. Whatever the term, children can learn and function productively given the appropriate educational plan.

The Northeast Regional ASD Network is available to provide Resources and Training to local school districts in the areas of:

  • Assessment and verification of ASD
  • ​Program planning, including identification and implementations of appropriate strategies and interventions for students with ASD

The Northeast region has a lending library consisting of books, videos, and other resources that is available to school districts and parents upon request. These may be checked out from the ESU7 Media Department.
