Webcast Overview:

The Bureau of Autism Services, DPW, in collaboration with the regional ASERTs, is about to publish a series of reports highlighting findings and recommendations resulting from the PA Autism Needs Assessment. This
survey, the most comprehensive study of its kind, reflects feedback shared by over 3,500 families and individuals with autism in the Commonwealth.

Report topics include: Statewide Summary, Service Needs, Barriers to Accessing Services, Unwanted Outcomes, Diagnosis, Employment Challenges, and Family Impact.

To learn more about this project and other BAS current initiatives, including Pennsylvania’s two adult autism programs and training resources, we encourage you to join the Bureau during an upcoming webcast: 8/24/2011, 1:00-2:30pm or 8/30/2011, 10:00-11:30am. Please visit
