Since the 1990 enactment of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), there has been a strong call nationally for change in education at all levels to include students with autism. The Teachers College at Emporia State University has long been an institution devoted to improving lives through educational opportunities and an initiator of instruction which focuses on the unique needs of individual learners.

The Kansas Resource Center on Autism (KRCA), funded by the Kansas Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, provides the opportunity for Kansas to obtain information, consultation or training on topics related to autism including: family support, education, services and research.

KRCA will provide information to seekers through two functions: a Clearinghouse on Autism located in the Teachers College Resource Center; and, courses and specially scheduled workshops held on the ESU campus. The faculty and staff at The Teachers College are committed to promoting understanding of autism through providing information to families, peers, public school educators, related service providers and others who provide day-to-day supports for individuals with autism across the life-span.
