The Autism Spectrum Advisory Board was created in 2016 to help provide guidance and information to New York policy makers, individuals with an Autism Sepctrum Disorder Diagnosis, and families seeking reliable information regarding available service and supports. The Members of the Board are tasked with several important duties including:

  • Studying and reviewing the effectiveness of supports and services currently being provided to people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders
  • Identifying legislative and regulatory activity which may be required to improve existing service systems that support people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders
  • Identifying methods of improving interagency coordination of services and maximizing the impact and effectiveness of services and agency functions
  • Other matters as deemed appropriate by the Board

The Board is developing recommendations in these areas, with concentration on a variety of topics laid out in their first report, and is seeking input into what these recommendations should be. Therefore The Board will be holding public forums which the public is invited to attend. In addition to the host sites for each form there will be satellite locations connected by videoconference.
