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.

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.
