If you have been following the conversation on Facebook and our e-newsletter, ASA-Net, then you know the Autism Society has set its sights toward following long-term strategic goals:
1. Ensure 100% of children showing the signs of autism are screened by 3.
2. Pave the way for the successful transition of young adults who leave the educational system in order that they can be gainfully employed, have options to advance their education, and/or be successful in living as independently and self-sufficient as possible.
During the past two weeks, you recommended the initiatives that could be successful in your communities and told us the issues most important to you in regards to early screening and transitions to adulthood. The Autism Society exists to serve you. That’s why it’s your turn to ask us the questions about our goals.
Here’s how it works
Please leave your questions about the Autism Society’s goals and course of action in the comments of this blog post by 11:59 EST on Sunday, January 29. Your questions will be answered in a following blog post by Autism Society Board Chairman Jim Ball, and Autism Society President and COO Scott Badesch.
