This is the first program to provide teachers with tools to prepare to begin this critical dialogue.

The new kit includes a Talking to Parents About Autism training DVD that features information and advice about how educators can best broach the topic of a potential developmental delay. Also included in the tool kit is an Early Childhood Milestone Map, which can be printed and distributed to parents so that they can more easily track their child's progress against the typical, age-specific developmental milestones. The entire kit, available in both English and Spanish, is available at www.autismspeaks.org.
