The Autism Project
The Autism Project was created by The Illinois General Assembly in response to the need for training consultation and services for the state's growing number of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Designed to create and enhance community networks that promote best practice in the diagnosis treatment and education of children with ASD. The Autism Project provides diagnostics parent training and consulting services as part of the larger systems development venue. The project's research and evaluation division participates in and funds research initiatives that will have a direct impact on children families and the system of care.
