As direct support professionals working with individuals with autism on a daily basis, you may be working to address a variety of concerns, collaborate with different family members and professionals, and coordinate services from a number of systems. Your time is limited and we know it is important to provide you with resources and training support that is accessible to your needs and schedule. This resource collection was created with the goal of providing accessible training and content, touching on nine major categories below, with eight infographics that also have an associated online Prezi training to walk through the content more in-depth. Each infographic indicates the competency they meet, an introduction of the content and strategies to support individuals. We hope this resource is helpful to you, and we look forward to continuing to build on this collection. Resources were developed in collaboration with the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP): Bureau of Autism Services (BAS), the Autism Services, Education, Resources and Training (ASERT) Collaborative Eastern Region, and Consultant Val Paradiz.

The ASERT Collaborative Eastern Region and the Philadelphia Autism Project will be at the Autism Speaks Walk in Philadelphia promoting voting education.
