Vision:

To provide an educational system, to include a shared responsibility among school, family, and community, which will develop productive, successful members of the community, by using evidence-based practices and increasing the overall awareness of ASD.

In other words: getting it right the first time - every time.

Mission:

Provide an educational system to include a shared responsibility among school, family, and community, which will develop productive, successful members of the community, by using evidence-based practices and increasing the overall awareness of ASD.

Beliefs:

  • Children with ASD are entitled to general education opportunities.
  • Shared responsibility/collaboration among students, parents, school district, and the community has a direct effect on the quality of the educational experience of each student.
  • Parents, staff, and community should have access to resources that will increase advocacy and awareness.
  • Educational opportunities will lead to meaningful, productive post graduate opportunities.
  • Early identification will increase positive outcomes.
  • A strong commitment to continuous improvement is essential to achieving our mission.

Goals:

  • NNRSEP will work with the community to establish Parent Resource Centers.

  • Counties within the NNRSEP will implement a social skills program for targeted students with ASD utilizing division selected curriculum that incorporate evidence based practices.

  • NNRSEP will establish and implement protocols for early identification in all four divisions by the students' Kindergarten year to include an Autism Screening Tool.

  • All NNRSEP preschool students with ASD will have an established individualized, functional communication system upon entering Kindergarten and will be re-evaluated annually to ensure that it is being implemented with fidelity.

  • Schools within NNRSEP divisions will provide increased access to the general education curriculum with the support of core EBPs for students with ASD as appropriate for that individual student as measured by an inclusion readiness checklist.
