Autism Endorsements: State Approaches. inForum
Muller, Eve
Project Forum
In 1992, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) first introduced autism as a federal disability category and mandated that states provide annual counts of children so identified. Since that time, the number of students identified with autism has grown significantly (U.S. Department of Education, 1994, 2002). Several states have responded to IDEA and/or to the increase in numbers of students with autism by offering an autism endorsement. The purpose of this document is to describe their approaches to autism endorsement. Project Forum at the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) conducted this analysis as part of its Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs. Autism Endorsement Interview Protocol is appended. (Contains 1 table and 8 footnotes.)
