When a juvenile has been diagnosed with autism or anything on the autism-spectrum, such as Asperger’s Syndrome, it can be challenging to find resources as a family or to suggest to the juvenile court. Here are some options:
Indiana Resource Center for Autism is coordinated through Indiana University and includes diverse information from apps to help with communication to services and resources in Indiana (including educational support) and research articles.
Autism Society of Indiana is a great resource, especially for access to support groups for parents and children.
Austism Resource Network of Indiana is a one-stop place to find out what events are happening throughout the state.
There is a permanent legislative committee, the Indiana Commission on Autism, that meets periodically to consider developments and draft proposed legislation for the General Assembly.
There are a variety of providers throughout the state, but one of note is the Children’s Resource Group in Indianapolis, which offers testing, medication management (including food supplements), therapy, and support groups. There is also a blog for parents.
