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 promote community-based experiences, and evidence-based interventions. As part of this mission, The Autism NOW Center hosts free webinars every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:00 to 3:00 pm (EST). Designed for self-advocates, families, professionals, and the general public, these webinars encompass a wide variety of topics and practices in the area of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and developmental disabilities.
