Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Center Programs

ASD center programs ) in Jeffco prioritize building students’ independence while using smaller student-to-teacher ratios in an inclusive educational environment. Students in the ASD program are supported in areas that they may need additional resources. Areas include, but are not limited to, Social and emotional learning, functional communication and general education support.

Placement into an ASD program is determined by the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team. Students are not required to have an autism medical diagnosis or an Autism Educational Identification (AEI). The district determines the placement location with consideration of parent input.

Jeffco ASD programs use the Colorado Department of Education’s Autism Program Quality Indicators.
