Welcome to the Autism Case Training (ACT) web-based continuing education course. This FREE introductory course is designed to help primary health care providers gain knowledge and skills to improve early identification of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and ensure timely and appropriate care.
The three modules in this course will help you better:
- identify autism spectrum disorder,
- assist a family through the diagnostic process,
- and care for patients with autism spectrum disorder.
You can select the modules most relevant to you – take one, two, or all three. Each module contains two or three case studies based on real-life situations. You may complete all cases within a module at once or at different times.
Each module is eligible for Continuing Education (CE) for physicians, nurses and other health professionals. To get continuing education, you must fill out an evaluation and take a quiz at the end of each module. Click here for more information on CE.
Please note: As of September 30, 2018, MOC-Part 2 credits are no longer available for this course.
