Autism Speaks has released a highly anticipated online comprehensive nationwide resource database, providing individuals and families with local resources that service a variety of needs from early intervention through adult care. This inclusive database, overseen by the Family Services Committee, provides users with information such as health care facilities, educational services, legal entitlements, recreational and community activities, and adult support services.
According to Brian Kelly, chair of the Family Services Committee, "Our resource database is an ongoing initiative to provide current resources for individuals and families affected by autism. It's crucial that these resources are inclusive of all age ranges; from the initial diagnosis through adulthood, so that we can continually support the needs of individuals and families affected by this disorder."
