What we do

The goals of the LASARD Project are: 1) to improve the outcomes of students with ASD and related disabilities by developing a pool of highly effective educators across the state 2) to facilitate and sustain the implementation of best practice quality indicators to support highly effective education programs and classroom instruction for students with ASD and related disabilities through coaching and training and 3) to develop model exemplars of professional practice and instructional interventions in schools that demonstrate effective, evidence based practices for students with ASD and related disabilities.

LASARD conducts an annual application process for selecting school districts/LEA to participate in the project as partners.  Selected districts enter into an agreement with LASARD to create and maintain a district-level team to work on capacity building within the district.  Once selected, these partner districts are expected to remain in the Project for three years.
