Vermont Interdisciplinary Leadership Education for Health Professionals (VT-ILEHP) Autism Learning Resources

The VT-ILEHP program has developed learning modules for several Autism screening tools as well as other instructional materials in an effort to create additional resources for the Autism support community in Vermont as well as the Autism support community at large. These resources can help train primary health care and community providers for children birth to 6 who use best practices in the screening and referral of children at risk for or suspected of having an ASD as well as the training and development of regional interdisciplinary, family-centered and culturally competent assessment teams who are implementing best practices in the differential diagnosis of children with ASD.
