Welcome to Region 17's Autism Website. Our goal is to provide support and training via staff development and on-site technical assistance. We work to ensure that districts are effectively and confidently implementing programs using evidence-based best practices in visual strategies and other effective teaching methodologies designed for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders.


Training is designed to address the full range of student and district needs which include, but are not limited to: communication skills, social skills, assessment, academic skills, self-help skills, instructional methodologies, and current research in the scientific field of autism.

Additionally, support is available to assist districts with compliance to the state requirements for extended-year programming, in-home training, and parent training.
