eLearning


Effective training material includes relevant, robust content. However, to truly make an impact, training must be innovative and easily accessible to those who need it. To meet our stakeholders’ needs, we developed LANTERN (Learning Assistance iNstruction Training Education Resource Network).

Trainings available on LANTERN are collections of short resources designed for the busy lives of self-advocates, support persons, professionals, clinicians and caregivers. We also recognize the need for overall awareness and have developed trainings specifically for community members.

LANTERN tracks user accomplishments, provides proof of completion, allows learners to earn badges and points.

You must register for a PAAutism account to access these resources.
