The USAAA Library will be reconstructing the library during 2012 that will guide you to specific areas that include Pervasive Developmental Disorders including autism, Asperger's Syndrome, Rhett's Syndrome, PDD-NOS. The categories will include parents with a new diagnosis, parents looking for more information, individuals with autism, individuals with Asperger's Syndrome, siblings of individuals with autism/Asperger's, students, educators, practitioners, someone interested in autism, caregivers or family, and more. Once you identify your category, you will be taken to a page that asks questions pertaining to your category, such as, "What is the newest research", "Who is treating autism", "What do I do about my child now", and many more options.
Keep checking back to this page for an update and be sure to subscribe to our weekly email newsletter (complimentary) as we will announce the new library in a future issue. Our target for the library change will be sometime in 2012 or when we receive sponsorship for the new design.
The following are quick links that address many needs, including the IEP (Individualized Education Plan), special education news, therapy's including speech and occupational, autism information, apraxia, Health Care Practitioners, Clinical Practice Guidelines for children ages 0-3, specialty organic testing, biomedical interventions, nutritional supplements for autism, early intervention programs, plus more.
