TARGET: Texas Autism Resource Guide for Effective Teaching
The TARGET: Texas Autism Resource Guide for Effective Teaching is designed to assist schools in developing practices from initial referral to program development and implementation with a strong emphasis on research-based and peer-reviewed strategies. As such, this guide contains six sections relative to autism spectrum disorders (AU1): (a) eligibility vs. diagnosis, (b) educational implications, (c) evaluation, (d) interventions, (e) index, and (f) a glossary. Information is presented in alphabetical order; item order reflects no endorsement or mandate. Further, decisions about which assessments and interventions to use are left to qualified individuals or committees charged with reviewing and creating programs for students with AU.
