The IUP-ASERT Collaborative is a grant venture with the Autism Services, Education, Resources, and Training Collaborative (ASERT), which is funded by the Bureau of Autism Services and the Office of Development Programs, Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare.
In 2013, a new training manual and DVD, A Guide for Emergency Department Personnel: Assessing and Treating Individuals With Autism, aims to educate emergency medical personnel on how to assess, communicate with, and treat the autistic patient.
In 2012, the first in the series of training manuals and DVDs designed for first responders was developed to educate first responders on how to assess and communicate with, and about tactics on how to deal with people with autism.
