In society's quest to better understand autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and address the challenges it presents for individuals, families and professionals, hundreds of organizations and businesses have emerged in recent years, many offering a wealth of information about the disorder. Even organizations that have been in existence for decades have focused new efforts on developing and providing helpful resources to assist caregivers and professionals in home, school and work settings. These cumulative efforts have one primary goal — to help individuals affected by the disorder reach their full potential. Fortunately for those seeking information, many of the ASD resources developed by organizations and businesses have been made available through the Internet.
The "ASD Resources" section of the TARRC website is a collection of resources on key ASD topics that we hope will be useful to both families and professionals. While the resources in this section are numerous, there are many more available on the Internet that can assist you in learning about ASD. We encourage you to explore further on your own, and ask that you suggest additional hyperlinks to TARRC when you come across excellent resources you feel should be shared with others. With your contributions, we can create an even better selection of resources to support people interested in or affected by ASD. Further, if you encounter a broken hyperlink on this website, we would appreciate your letting us know by copying and pasting the broken hyperlink into the Contact TARRC form.
