To be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00 to 3:00 pm (EST), these webinars will begin with discussion around introductory information about the Center itself and our partner organizations. Future topics will include new and innovative practices in the area of autism and developmental disabilities.
The Autism NOW Center is a project funded by the Administration on Developmental Disabilities and a national initiative of The Arc. The Center gathers, organizes, and disseminates readily accessible, high-quality resources and information related to community-based services that support independent living and self-determination, treatment protocols that promoted community-based experiences, and evidence-based interventions. We provide resources and information in core areas across the lifespan. Focus areas include early diagnosis, early intervention, and early education; transition from high school into early adulthood; community-based employment; advocacy for families and self-advocates; community inclusion; aging issues; policy; implementation of health care reform, including long term care services and supports; family and sibling support; and networking in local, state, and national arenas.
