The following visualizations display our impact and are updated semiannually. Current data represent 10/1/19-9/30/20.

Intensive Support for a Cohort of States

We co-develop best practices for achieving statewide success. Our AEM Cohort is in the early months of identifying representatives from early childhood education, K-12, higher ed, workforce development, parent organizations, and Assistive Technology (AT) programs. Together, we’re  using the AEM Quality Indicators and the AEM Pilot to show how coordinated systems are created and sustained.

Do you live or work in one of these states? Want to get involved? Contact us at aem@cast.org.
