TSLAT - Texas Statewide Leadership for Autism Training

The Texas Statewide Leadership for Autism Training (TSLAT) network increases LEAs’ knowledge, understanding, and implementation of evidence-based practices that ensure the academic, functional, and behavioral needs of students with autism are met. TSLAT provides access to training, technical assistance, support, and resources for educators who serve students with autism. The TSLAT website includes online courses (some in Spanish), webinars, information about opportunities for deeper learning, a video library, and more.

The National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorder

The National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorder (NPDC)  was funded by the Office of Special Education Programs in the US Department of Education from 2007-2014. The work of the NPDC was a collaboration among three universities—the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and the MIND Institute, University of California-Davis.  The goal of the NPDC was to promote the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) for children and youth with ASD, birth to 22 years of age. This was accomplished through a comprehensive professional development process at state and local levels.
