"Shhh... quiet please!" is a familiar utterance at libraries across the country. However, if one were to visit Summit Educational Resources library media center he or she would most likely encounter not only lots and lots of noise, but children who are learning how to check out books, listen to a story, and properly interact with their peers. Summit Educational Resources is a private, not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to serving more than 1600 students. Summit offers an array of services including an Early Autism Program that focuses on addressing the needs of students with autism spectrum disorders, on service coordination, and features a year round school program for students through age 21. Summit's mission is to prepare children and young adults with developmental disabilities for life success. Roughly 75 percent of Summit's students are diagnosed with autism. (Contains 5 resources.)
