SPOTLIGHT: Free online education resource!

We just heard about a resource that offers free online education – and we want to tell you about it!

This resource is from Australia, and now includes a module out on supporting mental health in people with developmental disabilities and Autism.  There is a section specifically for caregivers of folks with developmental disabilities and mental health needs as well.
