Albuquerque Public Schools
Autism Resource Services
Highland North, Austism Center
4700 Coal Ave SE
Albuquerque, NM 87108-1312
Overview: Students with autism present unique challenges to school teams. Regardless of whether this is your first or fiftieth experience with one or more students with autism, it may be helpful to share your concerns, frustrations and triumphs with other professionals who are trained to consult with you regarding students with autism. The recent increase in the number of students diagnosed with autism has led to continuing research concerning the most effective instructional strategies. Methods that are effective for other students with or without disabilities are often not effective for students with autism. The Autism Resource Team has a variety of resources to share, expertise in areas related to quality programming and a readiness to help school teams meet the challenges of working effectively with students with autism. In addition to consultation, the Autism Resource Team provides a variety of training opportunities throughout the school year. Schools can also request autism-related staff development. The Autism Resource Team is here to help you put the pieces together
