While the availability of information on EBPs for students with autism continues to grow, research suggests that a disconnect still exists between the research and practical application. Likely reasons for this gap include teacher turnover, lack of autism-specific training, and multiple demands placed on teachers that take time away from a their ability to plan and create materials to support and implement EBPs.

Connections for Autism bridges the gap between research and practice by putting tangible resources that support the implementation of EBPs into the hands of practitioners. Instructional materials can be downloaded and customized to fit the needs of your students. Materials are differentiated to address the unique learning styles of students with autism spectrum disorder and to allow students to access the content of Common Core Standards.

Connections for Autism relies on the research presented by The University of North Carolina, Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, Autism Evidence-Based Practice Review Group, as a reference for evidence-based practices for students with autism spectrum disorder.
