Uneven Services for Individuals with Autism and Asperger's
Posted Oct 23 2008 2:10pm
In my talk yesterday at the University of Hawaii's Social Science Research Insititute I was asked about how other states are faring with providing adequate services to students with autism. While both Hawaii and my home state of New Hampshire have now issued guidelines for best practices, it is difficult to say "which states are doing best" since ideal situations are found more in particular school districts or towns. My friend and former Kamehemeha Schools colleague, Larry Loganbill, an educational filmmaker from Kauai, passed this article from Edutopia today which does a good job summing up the state of schools and what's up with offering evidence based practice for autism. But enough about autism and Asperger's...the tradewinds have slowed a bit, so I'm off to do some snorkeling, followed by the UH Rainbows baseball game tonight with an old UH friend.
