Autism Educators Network


Due to the rapid growth in the numbers of children with autism being served in schools, the Autism Educators Network (AEN) was organized in the spring of 1999 to network key educators involved with students who experience Autism Spectrum Disorder across the state of Missouri. All interested educational professionals are welcome to attend for informative and enjoyable collaboration. Important programming, assessment, resource, and legal issues are among the topics addressed at meetings, both informally through a facilitated discussion, as well via presentations that vary in content. The AEN meetings are not intended to be training sessions, but information dissemination and networking meetings. While school districts are certainly welcome to send multiple representatives from the same district, we encourage you to send a district representative who will share information learned with colleagues. Each attendee is asked to bring resources or materials appropriate to share, as time allows.

Details for our upcoming AEN meeting, in Fall 2021, will be released soon.

If you are interested in joining AEN and attending meetings, please contact the Project ACCESS office at 866-481-3841 or Joan Armstrong at
