Programs for students with ASD are designed to address the core social-communicative disorder as well as meet the educational and behavioral needs of each student. Educational services are agreed upon by the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team or Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) team. Services are provided in the least restrictive environment where the child is able to participate and learn. Students who have Autism Spectrum Disorder and the ability to benefit from general education curriculum are educated in general education classrooms with additional supports provided as needed by the student's district of residence. In the case of small, direct-service, school districts, TCOE staff provides special education services.
