HANDS in Autism® has emerged as a state-wide training and resource center making a significant impact in the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other special needs as well as their families and caregivers. Their mission is to provide unique learning opportunities designed to improve understanding of the process and ability of working with individuals with ASD and a range of other developmental and behavioral challenges through hands-on and coaching experiences and building bridges of information, resources and collaboration across family, educational, medical and community systems. https://handsinautism.iupui.edu/

It is important to note that an FASD diagnosis does not preclude a diagnosis of ASD, if the child in question meets criteria for both disorders. For this small minority of children, treatment will be more complex due to the need to address (sometimes overlapping) problems with behavior and social interactions associated with both disorders.
