The Autism Society exists to improve the lives of all affected by autism. We do this by increasing public awareness about the day-to-day issues faced by people on the spectrum, advocating for appropriate services for individuals across the lifespan, and providing the latest information regarding treatment, education, research and advocacy.
The site for the Indiana Resource Center for Autism, a part of the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, is full of helpful resources. You can find guides to services in Indiana, a large collection of articles with practical tips, links to upcoming workshops and trainings as well as information on how to obtain a diagnosis and so much more!
Project A+ is a research study that discovered solutions to serving academic library users with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The research protocol included working with three diverse academic libraries, librarians, disability services personnel, autism experts, academic librarians and students on the autism spectrum to gather data on the types of library settings, activities, services, and materials that students with ASD prefer. This resulting manual for academic librarians is intended to assist them in reducing library anxiety and supporting success in students with ASD and their use of the library.
