Support Special Education Licensure Endorsement initiatives!
AN ACT TO INCREASE CAPACITY TO ADDRESS THE
COMPLEX NEEDS OF STUDENTS WITH AUTISM
House Bill 344
Lead sponsor: Representative Bradley
The endorsement will address the specific competencies needed for teachers to address the complex and unique needs of students with autism. Starting in 2016, IEP Teams for students with autism would include a teacher with an Autism Endorsement to ensure that the school can fully address the complex communication, behavioral, sensory, social, and academics needs of youth in the least restrictive environment.
