TRAINING in ASD, Pediatric Healthcare
Produced by the Learn the Signs Campaign, Autism Case Training (ACT) is a web-based course that provides Continuing Education Credits. Designed for the Pediatric Healthcare Professional, this introductory course contains three modules designed to help you better:
- identify autism spectrum disorders,
- assist a family through the diagnostic process,
- and care for patients with autism spectrum disorders.
Users will gain knowledge and skills to improve early identification of children with ASDs and ensure timely and appropriate care.
You can select the modules most relevant to you – or take all three! Each module is eligible for CME, CNE, and CEU. Each module contains two or three case studies based on real-life situations. You may complete all cases within a module at once or at different times.

Autism Spectrum Disorders
The NH Leadership in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Program (NH LEND) is a collaboration between Dartmouth Medical School, the Institute on Disability/UCED at the University of New Hampshire, and the Center for Community Inclusion and Disability Studies/UCED at the University of Maine-Orono. The purpose of NH LEND is to improve the health of children and youth with neurodevelopmental disabilities by preparing leaders to enter the field of maternal and child health. Trainees from a wide variety of professional disciplines engage in training related to interdisciplinary, family-centered, culturally competent systems of care for children and youth with developmental disabilities and their families.
This is an extensive library of training modules developed by the Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI) in partnership with the Autism Society of America, the Nebraska Autism Spectrum Disorders Network, the National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders and Toronto's Geneva Centre for Autism. The online learning modules include information on assessment and identification of ASDs, recognizing and understanding behaviors and characteristics, transition to adulthood, employment, and numerous evidence-based practices and interventions.
Lectures by some of the leading researchers in the field of autism, many are appropriate for healthcare professionals seeking background information to help explain autism and its treatment to family caregivers. Topics include EEG and neuroimaging studies, behavioral treatments, and genetics.
