Iowa Autism Services and Supports Survey:
The Iowa Regional Autism Assistance Program Expert Panel and Iowa Autism Council would like to hear from parents, family members, individuals, and providers. We want to know how Iowa can improve services and supports for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families. Please take a few minutes to fill out this quick survey, which will close 10/8/2021. Thank you!
Background: In early 2015, a strategic planning committee was tasked with developing a statewide strategic plan to improve services and supports for individuals with ASD and their families. The committee included family members along with educational, medical, and community service providers. The committee identified five focus areas and 13 strategies for the 5-year strategic plan with a vision to “ensure that all Iowans with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to live independent and interdependent lives within their community and to reach their full potential.” Responses will help with the update of Iowa’s Strategic Plan 2016-2021: To Improve Services and Supports for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their Families.
