The Department of Defense (DoD) Office of Community Support for Military Families with Special Needs announces the new Educational Directory for Children with Special Needs.
The Directory provides useful, practical information about the services for children with ASD. The Directory provides assignment personnel and families of military dependents with ASD the information they need to make informed decisions when considering assignments of military members with children who have ASD to locations in the five states.
The directory provides the following information:
- brief summaries of national and state policies related to ASD, including the latest evidence-based practices for children with ASD
- profiles and contact information for districts that serve military installations in the selected states
- a representative list of effective resources
- suggestions and resources to assist families during the educational transition of their child with ASD
The Directory provides assignment personnel and families of military dependents with ASD the information they need to make informed assignment decisions.
Useful resources are also included. Currently, the directory includes information primarily related to children with ASD, but information related to additional disabilities will continue to be added.
