The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act has mandated that school aged children from ages 3 to 21 receive a "free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment." This has resulted in a large percentage of students with autism, Asperger syndrome, non-verbal learning disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder being included in regular public schools and classrooms. The main objective for this tutorial is to support school security personnel in maintaining a safe and secure learning environment in schools where students with autism spectrum disorders are among the learners.
