What is MALT?   MALT stands for Maine Autism Leaders Team, which is a group of educators, therapists, specialists, and administrators who are committed to learning about the most effective and evidence-based practices for educating students with autism spectrum disorder. RSU 12 will be working with schools from all over the state who are participating in a Department of Education Grant in collaboration with the University of Maine.  With this opportunity, our district team will receive extensive training on autism spectrum disorder, data collection to monitor for important student outcomes, and in-district coaching with a focus on implementation with fidelity so that these practices will endure.
