Indiana Autism Spectrum Disorder Needs Assessment:
An Examination of Hoosiers Navigating
Autism Services and Supports
The 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 is 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 in developing and disseminating the Indiana ASD Needs Assessment Survey. Issue/Policy briefs will be written focused on specific topics and shared statewide.
Thank you to all who responded to this survey. Special thanks to Blaine Addison Garman-McClaine who handled all logistics of the survey, including design and data reporting.
