Autism Services Across the Nation Book Release

A new book about autism services across the nation has just been released, with the publication effort being led by Pennsylvania. Chapter 6 of Autism Services Across America: Road Maps for Improving State and National Education, Research, and Training Programs features Commonwealth services provided through the PA Department of Education and the PA Department of Human Services (DHS)'s Bureau of Autism Services. Pennsylvania's chapter is the only one outlining services for adults.

Peter Doehring, PhD, author, notes that the book provides the background information and guidance needed by leaders, advocates, and anyone who is trying to expand or improve programs of services, training, and research. Different themes emphasized in the book include: the need to consider the full spectrum of needs, how to create alliances across disciplines and agencies, how to build expertise and overall capacity, the types of research that can drive system change, and the role of parents and people with ASD as partners.

Although this is not a free resource, ASERT is pleased to share this important accomplishment highlighting Pennsylvania's continued efforts to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families living with autism.
