ABSTRACT: Recent research and practice in the education of students with autism are contrasted with earlier approaches and grouped in seven current issues: assessment, early intervention,family involvement, setting of classrooms, curriculum, program evaluation, and staff training and consultation. These issues both underscore the importance of some current roles for school psychologists and point to new roles that must be played in order to build stronger school services.
