Back to School: “The New Normal,” IEP Resources, Public Policy, and Advocacy – August 2020 Toolkit

This August, the Autism Society of America and the Autism Society of Greater New Orleans are dedicated to providing the autism community with the valuable resources necessary for the ever-changing landscape of back to school during COVID-19. Our goal is to provide resources to help autistic individuals and families as they navigate the “New Normal” of education during the COVID-19 crisis this summer.

Below we have compiled a digital toolkit of resources, information, referrals, and support to help autistic individuals and their families navigate Back to School and IEP information, as well as public policy and advocacy highlights to assist in transitions during the pandemic.
