This paper will examine the need for a comprehensive online resource that contains easily accessible information about autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This includes: general facts about ASD, how the characteristics of ASD may compare to those exhibited by a child who is deaf or hard of hearing, and potential methods of instruction for children with both diagnoses.
