Our CDE Autism Team is committed to supporting schools and families while in-person learning has been suspended. We recognize the selection of materials, resource location and delivery of instruction can be overwhelming so our team has collected resources and tools specific to ASD that may be useful during this time as you plan for students.

Consistent with our mission, we are providing evidence-based practices and supports from national, state and local groups. These shared resources do not serve as CDE guidance for delivering services remotely.

Colorado Autism
Education Network

As a reminder, the Colorado Autism Education Network remains available as another option to support schools and districts during this time. School/District leadership can submit an online request and our ASD team will respond within 48 hours acknowledging the submission.
