|Addressing the needs of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder requires a meaningful collaboration of members from interprofessional teams including teachers, rehabilitation professional and family members. At present, each discipline approaches the topic from a discipline specific perspective limiting the integration of concepts, goals and objective across disciplines. This project will use existing learning materials and develop new ones to create teaching modules to be used within the Autism Certification Program (ODU) and the School of Physical Therapy ODU). Existing materials will be enhanced by the integration of videos and clinical cases where rehabilitation therapists work with actual clients.|
