Students can see how multidisciplinary teams operate and gain an understanding of the skills and perspectives offered by professionals in different disciplines.
The faculty and staff affiliated with the ACC are committed to the training and development of the professionals who will serve people with autism in the future and who will advocate on their behalf for appropriate care and support. Students are encouraged to talk with faculty in their programs about learning opportunities at the Center. Students can also contact the Center for more information.
