New Autism Roadmap™ Helps Families Navigate Autism Spectrum Disorder

Published on in CHOP Family News

The Center for Autism Research (CAR) at CHOP has created the Autism Roadmap ™, a comprehensive, one-stop website to help families obtain accurate, up-to-date information about autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The website provides families customized information based on what they need — whether their child has just been diagnosed or they’ve hit an obstacle and are looking for new ideas and resources.

Families using the Roadmap will find directories of service providers, community resources, government programs, information and ideas for various stages of life, plus explanations of the latest research on ASD treatments and interventions. The site was developed entirely as a result of philanthropy and with the expertise of nearly a dozen of the nation’s top autism experts at CAR.  Extensive input and testing from families ensured that it is comprehensive and easy to use. It will be continuously updated as new information becomes available or as resources and community information change. Visit the Roadmap.
