Remote Consultation

The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly changed the educational landscape. As educators across the state are working on new and innovative ways to reach students, we at the UW Autism Center want to do our part to support these efforts. The UW Autism Center is now providing Remote Student Consultation services throughout the state. Through this process, specialists provide remote observation and consultation to help educators and other school personnel to maximize their effectiveness and continue to implement best practices. This consultation service is appropriate for a wide variety of students and especially for those students engaging in high levels of challenging behaviors or having difficult accessing material remotely.
