The Autism Society has teamed up with representatives of a White House initiative, Joining Forces, to support military families affected by autism. In a meeting this month, the Autism Society met with federal, corporate and nonprofit representatives, including partners AMC Theatres and like-minded advocacy organizations, to begin a dialogue about how to best serve American military families.
Some of the issues discussed include ensuring military families, who often move throughout the country, have dependable access to the care and diagnosis services they need. The group also discussed ways to support individuals from military families looking to enter the workforce and maintain meaningful employment.
The Autism Society looks forward to working with this initiative to make a difference in the lives of our military families.
