Each of the HANDS in Autism® Local Community Cadres (LCC) continue to develop strategies to assist in improving awareness about autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in order to improve outcomes and quality of life for individuals in their community with ASD.
Several regions have already identified a resource they will disseminate as a strategy to assist them with their regional cadre goals. In the next quarter, those LCCs will be reviewing the outcomes data surrounding dissemination of their chosen resource to determine the effectiveness of their efforts. Check out the progress of the LCCs below.
For additional information about the LCCs and how they collaboratively partner with HANDS in Autism® to identify and address the ASD needs in their community, visit our LCC webpage. If you want to learn how you can become engaged with your local cadre, let us know by clicking here.
