National Resource and Information Center on Autism Spectrum Disorder and other Developmental Disabilities  

The AutismNOW Center provides high-quality resources and information related to community-based services that support independent living and self-determination, treatment protocols and promote community-based experiences (e.g. education employment, recreation, transportation, early intervention and child care), and evidence-based interventions for ASD service providers, researchers, families and autistic people. The AutismNOW Project is collaborating with several partners, including the Autistic Self Advocacy Network, the Autism Society of America and several Administration on Developmental Disabilities' Network entities to engage and leverage a national network of disability, aging, and family organizations. The Center routinely holds national-wide educational webinar events and parent-to-parent town hall meetings for families addressing issues relating to autism and other developmental disabilities.
