This training curriculum from the CDC, called Autism Case Training (ACT), is designed to help educate primary care practitioners about finding, diagnosing, and managing autism spectrum disorders. The training uses real-life scenarios and consists of 7 modules, each with a facilitator’s guide and supporting presentation and videos. All course materials can be downloaded and used in the classroom or for independent study. 

Training module topics are: early warning signs, screening, communicating concerns (screening and diagnosis results), making a diagnosis, early intervention and education, treatments for autism, and autism-specific anticipatory guidance. (posted April 6, 2012)
