Education and Autism
When faced with the challenge of selecting an appropriate placement for a child, parents and professionals need to understand the concept of “least restrictive environment” (LRE).
If a child already receives special education services, the above standards apply for re-evaluation. A re-evaluation must take place at least every three years. Learn more about this process.
CVASA Resource Guide
A comprehensive guide put together by CVASA that includes information on local, state and national resources, as well as medical and therapeutic information.
