Each micro-training is available online, asynchronously and can be accessed on a computer, smart phone, or tablet anywhere in the world, and at anytime. All micro-trainings are interactive, no more than 2-hours in length, and utilize Universal Design concepts that allow for multiple ways to engage with the information throughout the training. Micro-trainings will be available in a multitude of subject matters under specific areas of focus such as healthcare, education, government, or organizational settings. Each micro-training is developed by an expert in the field many of whom are Autistic and founded on research and current best practice in each specialized area.
