Discussion of personnel preparation in autism spectrum disorders considers areas of concern including the current teacher shortage and attrition among special education teachers, noncategorical versus categorical teacher training, lack of scope and depth of most autism training models, clashes in theoretical orientations, and interactions with parents.
