A new instructional video produced by the University of Cincinnati UCEDD/LEND illustrates how to use the Autism Case Training (ACT) Modules created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in training pediatric and Family Medicine residents.  The ACT Modules are available at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website and the video link is available on Vimeo or YouTube.

The Autism Case Training (ACT) case-based curriculum is designed for use in training on screening, diagnosing and treatment for autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities.  ACT is a component of the "Learn the Signs. Act Early"  Program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The purpose of "Act Early" is to improve early identification of autism and other developmental disabilities so children and their families can get the services and support they need.
