Autism Internet Modules (AIM) Note: You have to register for this site. Note2: 10 of the planned 60 modules are currently available. The AIM project will develop a series of 60 modules by the time the project is complete on topics including assessment and identification, characteristics, evidence-based practices and interventions, transition to adulthood, and employment. Module authors include experts on ASD from across the nation. These modules are available at no cost to any computer user. These modules have the potential to positively impact the educational, family, vocational, and medical communities - on a local and worldwide basis - and may alter the ways in which ASD training occurs. For example, * A school district that wishes to provide training to their paraprofessionals on priming (i.e., introducing information or activities prior to their use and/or occurrence) would require that they complete the ASD module on priming prior to attending the training. During the actual training, school district personnel could work with the paraprofessionals to apply the knowledge they had learned from the modules. Thus, during the training paraprofessionals would be evaluating priming supports already in place with the students they support and/or designing new priming supports that meet students' needs. * Parent support group members who meet to talk about home-based visual supports might access the module on visual supports prior to their meeting and focus meeting time on developing visual supports for their children. * A university faculty member who wishes to provide coursework in ASD may use the videotaped clips that illustrate the characteristics of autism or Asperger syndrome and download PowerPoint slides, resources and references, knowledge-based assessment tools, and case studies to be used in graduate or undergraduate courses. Reference - Parent and Professional Training  AIM
