By Autism Society
Autism touches us all. According to the CDC, 1 in 110 or 1 percent of the U.S. population is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. So, regardless of whether you’re an individual with autism, a family member, a friend, a neighbor, a classmate, a coworker or a service provider, it’s important to understand autism.
That’s where the Autism Society’s bi-monthly e-newsletter, ASA-Net, comes in. We provide you the latest news and resources about autism, and updates on what the Autism Society is doing each day to improve lives. Sign up to receive ASA-Net, and find all the information you need in one place! The newsletter includes:
Advocacy opportunities: Learn about legislation currently being considered, like the Combating Autism Act (which needs to be reauthorized this year!) Help us to promote laws that benefit the autism community by responding to Action Alerts.
Notices for upcoming conferences and events: Don’t miss these opportunities to learn new things, get to know the autism community and have fun!
Upcoming Sensory Friendly Films: At these movies, shown at AMC theatres across the country, the sound is lowered and lights are left on so viewers with sensory issues aren’t overwhelmed. We include a link so you can find a participating theater near you.
Autism news: We compile breaking stories to keep you informed. Read about recent research, therapeutic advances and more.
Education: Find information about new teaching methods and products designed to help children with ASD succeed in the classroom.
Book and movie reviews: Learn about new and interesting autism-related media – for example, the groundbreaking documentary Wretches & Jabberers, which is now available for preorder from iTunes!
