Teacher Training Bill Introduced

On April 27, Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) introduced HR 5195, the AUTISM Educators Act. This bill would create a five-year grant program to train general-education classroom teachers on the best ways to identify and interact with students with autism spectrum disorders. The grants would be targeted at school systems with high autism rates (10 % or more of the district’s special-education population) and would require the systems to partner with a university or nonprofit group to develop the training program. No funding amounts were included in the bill.
