START stands for STatewide Autism Resources and Training. If a district has questions about the modules and training, they can contact Amy Idzior at email@example.com or 989-797-1835 ext 2219. To learn more about START, visit gvsu.edu/autismcenter
START was chosen in 2009 to be 1 of 3 states to take place in the National Professional Development Committee on Autism (NPDC). The pilot allowed schools like Arrowwood in Saginaw Township to learn about 24 Evidence Based Practices (EBPs) to support students with ASD.
