Ohio's Strategies in Action for people with autism spectrum disorder
The Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI) recently created a new Autism Certification Center and launched a groundbreaking online video training program for individuals who interact with individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The new program, called ASD Strategies in Action, gives families and service providers tools to ensure they are equipped to effectively care for, support, educate, employ, or work with individuals on the autism spectrum from early childhood through young adulthood. ASD Strategies in Action provides practical information and skills, demonstrated with real-life examples, filmed in a variety of settings, available in a mobile-friendly format that is free to all Ohioans and available anywhere. The program was funded under the leadership of the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Education and the Governor's Office of Health Transformation.
