The Jargon of the Day is Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). In the United States every school aged child is legally entitled to a "Free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment that give the student a floor of opportunity to access the curriculum." For many students this means being included with their neurotypical peers, but with accommodations. It is important to determine a students ability to be mainstreamed with supports before making a decision to place them in a setting where they do not have access to their peers.

Autism Live is a production of the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), headquartered in Woodland Hills, California, and with offices throughout, the United States and around the globe. For more information on therapy for autism and other related disorders, visit the CARD website at:
