Surveys aren’t something I usually post around here, but I happen to think that this one sponsored by Autism Speaks is very important!
They are looking for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder aged 14 and up – and their caregivers — to complete the Autism Speaks Housing and Residential Supports Survey. This survey will help them understand what families’ needs and hopes are for the future! It also appears your participation will give you the chance to win a free iPad.. so that’s a nice little perk.
Housing and residential options for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are limited and underfunded. While we know this is a problem through the stories we’ve heard from struggling families, anecdotal evidence alone does not lead to funding. Research organizations need to collect data to show those holding the purse strings that this issue is important and demands attention.
If you meet the criteria mentioned above, please consider taking this survey! Hopefully it will help lead to better supports down the line.
