Needs Assessment: Issue Briefs
The IIDC’s Indiana Resource Center for Autism (IRCA) is legislatively mandated to do a Needs Assessment Survey every 3 years (IC-12-11-8-3). The purpose of the survey was to identify: (A) the status of services provided to individuals with autism and their families; and (B) the need for additional or alternative services for individuals with autism and their families. In an effort to reach Hoosiers impacted by ASD, the IRCA partnered with The Arc of Indiana, the Autism Society of Indiana, Ball State University, Purdue University, Riley Child Development Center, Ascension St. Francis-Evansville, Easterseals Crossroads, IN*SOURCE, and Indiana University School of Social Work. Based on the results of this Needs Assessment, issue briefs are being developed with our partners to address a range of issues, including employment, mental health, behavior and others. This page will display these briefs as they are written.
