You are being invited by a parent, to join the “Take a Teacher to Coffee” challenge. Teachers in this program are requested to take the FREE online version of the Introduction to Autism workshop, developed by Project ACCESS, and share your opinion of the workshop with the Missouri Autism Report.!There are no prerequisites required for taking the workshop. Required skills include the ability to use email and a web browser, as well as basic word processing efficiency. Workshop goal is to provide basic information about autism, as it relates to providing services to students with ASD. We, in turn, would like to know if this information is pertinent and helpful to you as an educator. It will also prepare participants to take more advanced workshops offered by Project ACCESS. The Workshop is free and self-paced.! To take the course, go to http:// Your evaluation of the program can be sent to
