District selected to work with Center for Autism and Related Disabilities

The General Brown Central School District was recently notified that the University at Albany’s Center for Autism and Related Disabilities accepted the district’s application to be part of the center’s School Consultation Project for the 2020-2021 school year. The goal of the School Consultation Project is to help school district’s increase their capacity to service students with autism spectrum disorders by developing an in-house Autism Resource Team. The project provides training, resources and consultation to school faculty, staff, administration and parents to build capacity within the school regarding best practices in educating students with autism spectrum disorders, according to the project’s website.

“We are so excited to share this news with our community,” Superintendent Barbara J.
