Nearly one child of every 100 babies born will develop an autism spectrum disorder, and the autism rate is climbing. We believe:
People with autism spectrum disorder require the same early intervention services and life span services available to anyone with a developmental disability.
Our community’s service network must be encouraged and supported to develop strong diagnostic resources to accurately identify and treat people with an autism spectrum disorder.
People with autism spectrum disorder should be able to access the protection and advocacy services currently available to people with developmental disabilities.
Research must be funded to study the diagnostic and service intervention opportunities which would support individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
