    • What do you think about the current resources and services for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Indiana?
    • What has worked in supporting families, caregivers, and individuals with ASD? What has not?
    • What changes do you think should be made?

    HANDS in Autism® at the IU School of Medicine is currently reviewing and seeking input on the current resources and services available for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the families and professionals that support them. As part of these efforts, the HANDS in Autism® Center is looking for input from anyone who may be personally affected by ASD or who has a connection or role in supporting or serving individuals with ASD. All responses will be confidential with only summary data being shared with the State. After you finish the survey, you will be given an additional opportunity to participate through telephone interviews and/or web-based conference calls or live groups from areas across the state.

    Results from the survey will assist in informing the successes, challenges, and needs among groups who are affected by and support individuals with ASD. Each part of the process is essential in making recommendations and informing areas of success and need in your community and across the state. Your participation is highly valued!
