The Family Services Department at Autism Speaks will now offer online Office Hours each Wednesday, starting Aug 3, 2011, from 1:00-2:30 pm.
Office Hours, a new resource available on the web at www.autismspeaks.org will easily connect families to a wide variety of autism-related resources, including Family Services’ Toolkits, and the Autism Speaks Resource Guide, an online national database of autism providers and resources searchable by state and zip code. Family Services’ Office Hours is designed to quickly provide access to resources that are available and free to the entire autism community.
“Having a family member with autism can easily lead to feeling isolated without knowing where to turn. In addition, most families have little free time to search for reliable information about autism, yet they may be in need of timely information. Office Hours offers a quick connection to the Autism Response Team(ART) who can assist you in getting the information you need as quickly as possible,” states Marianne Sullivan, Assistant Director of National Outreach and Resources.
The Office Hours resource is staffed by ART—who are specially trained to connect with families about autism resources.
In addition to Office Hours, ART is available by telephone during usual business hours at 888-AUTISM 2 (888-288-4762). Also, you can reach ART by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
