The current status of services for students with disabilities is summarized. The present study evaluates autism practices in particular through survey research of professionals, general educators, and caregivers in Vietnam. Barriers to communication and areas for improvement are identified in order to make recommendations for the advancement of autism practices in Vietnam.
