The world of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is constantly evolving and autism is anything but simple to navigate. Because of the complexity of ASD, we have divided our resources into eleven different sections. ASD never impacts just one part of life, and it is more than just something with which young children struggle. It impacts every facet of life throughout the entire lifespan, from infancy to adulthood. While there are indeed many challenges for the individual with ASD, no matter their age or ability there are also strategies that can help the individual cope with what can seem like a very chaotic world. There are strategies to help the individual communicate more effectively or to develop and strengthen relationships. All of us at the VCU Autism Center for Excellence truly believe there are ways to improve the quality of life for every individual with ASD.

Throughout the Resources section, you will find web links, guides, fact sheets, agency information, trainings, videos, and research articles to help you support individuals with ASD.
