Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI)
The Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI) is in the process of developing Autism Internet Modules (AIM) in partnership with the Autism Society of America (ASA), the Nebraska Autism Spectrum Disorders Network, The National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders, the Organization for Autism Research, and Geneva Centre for Autism, Toronto, Canada. 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. Thus, these modules are available throughout Ohio and on a global basis.
