Awesome video highlighting the Eastern UP ISD LINKS Program

In the words of a colleague, "pure awesomeness"!! A must watch video!
The Michigan Statewide Autism Resources & Training program, otherwise known as START, has helped school districts, like the EUP ISD, develop a LINKS program.  The LINKS program is a peer modeling/peer mentoring system that "links" general education students with students with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder).  The "LINKS" model typical academic and social behavior and provide support for students with ASD throughout the school day. 
For more information, and access to Autism Internet Modules (AIM), visit the START site, or Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI).  OCALI has also created numerous modules on Assistive Technology or ATIM (Assistive Technology Internet Modules).
