Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health and Safety Guide
ASERT has compiled resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
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.
