How We Can Help

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction identified autism as a special education impairment area in 1995. Since 1995, the number of students identified as meeting eligibility criteria for an educational impairment of autism has significantly increased. This increase has significantly impacted schools in providing support services to meet the unique learning, processing and behavioral needs of students with autism.

The CESA 6 autism team was developed in 1995 to provide a variety of support services to school districts, and to better support and meet the educational needs of students identified with an educational impairment of autism. Our services include:

  • Allies in Autism Education
  • Itinerant Autism Program Support Consultation
  • Time / Effort Autism Consultations
  • Autism Evaluations
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Training
