Autism: Fighting the battle every day

Autistic students are spending less time in special-education classrooms.


Educators in Hawaii’s public schools and parents are, of course, the front line in helping students achieve success, but students can also help themselves with various programs provided by the Department. We encourage students to take advantage of the resources offered to them here.
