Welcome to the USAPT Online System

The Universal Supports Assessment and Planning Tool (USAPT) was developed through the START Project as a way for building teams to self-assess the universal supports established at a building level for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The USAPT was designed to measure two main areas of support within school buildings for students with ASD: 1) Foundational supports, that establish guiding principles, a team process, and family engagement, and 2) specific strategies to help students with ASD function independently and develop socially and academically. This online tool will help you gather assessments from the building coach and team members, identify areas of strength and areas for improvement, and set priorities for the upcoming school year. 

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2017:  the 2017-2018 USAPT assessments are now open to enter building level information. The 2016-2017 assessments are no longer available.
