Autism Resource Team Projects


2002-2003 SCHOOL YEAR


The Regional Autism Services Program offers each Area Education Agency’s Autism Resource Teams a small mini-grant of $500 to develop regional services each school year. Teams propose needs that are not presently covered by the AEA. Projects should involve a team activity centered on some joint effort that would make specific improvement(s) in services to the students and/or families of students. A description of an expected end product or how the outcome will be summarized and measured must be included in the proposals and sent in before grants will be approved the following year. All projects that can be reproduced are shared with all other Autism Resource Teams through their team leader mailing.
