Autism Navigator increases the capacity of healthcare and early intervention providers, educators, and families to improve outcomes of young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Project PALS (Panhandle Autism Library Services), is a joint venture between FSU’s PALM Center and the Autism Institute at the College of Medicine to help librarians and educators understand how autism is diagnosed.
Partly funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Project PALS is producing Web-based programs covering strategies from designing spaces for children on the spectrum to ways to integrate technology into social interaction and support children’s individual learning styles.
