In addition Arizona Department of Education, the Indiana Resource Center, and the University of Miami Center for Autism and Related Disorders are collaborating on content development for the AIM project.
The AIM project will develop a series of 60 online modules on ASD by the time the project is complete including characteristics, diagnosis, interventions and supports, transition, and employment. Module authors will include experts in ASD from across the nation. These modules are available at no cost, in an open-source format to any computer or digital telephone user.
