Autism Society of Ohio invites you to get involved in our Big Give for Autism (#AutismBigGive) on September 17.This is a day for you to provide real help for people and families living with autism.  Why should you get involved?  Consider these facts:

  • Every day 126 people are diagnosed with autism; that’s one person every 11 minutes.

  • Currently, there are an estimated 3.5 million people in the United States living with autism spectrum disorder.

  • People with autism and their families must navigate difficult systems, and many adults on the autism spectrum are denied basic civil rights, such as access to transportation, housing and jobs appropriate to their knowledge and skills.

For fifty years, the Autism Society has supported individuals with autism, their families, caregivers and friends as we advocate for better services and provide the latest information regarding treatment, education, research and advocacy. 

By supporting the Autism Society of Ohio, you join with thousands across the country to provide much-needed support for individuals with autism and their families.

Participate in Survey On Special Education in Ohio

You are invited to participate in a short survey (multiple choice questions) designed to obtain insights and perspectives on the condition of special education services in Ohio.  The survey is an important part of the Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children with Disabilities' (OCECD) Special Education Redesign Project.  The primary focus of the project is to determine the strengths and weaknesses of Ohio's special education system and then to use this knowledge to help make judgments about policy and program changes that would improve educational outcomes for children with disabilities. Stage 1 (May-September 2011) of the project is an intelligence gathering effort that involves the Coalition reaching out to knowledgeable special education stakeholders - parents, educational professionals and policy professionals - through personal interviews and the Coalition's web-based survey.

To participate in the survey, please click on the link that pertains to you.  You may also go online to the Coalition's website address ( and click on the Special Education Redesign Project survey to begin the survey.  (Survey will be available on our website by August 18th.  It’s ready now at the links below.)


Education Professionals, ie: Teachers, Administrators, Special Education Directors, Related Service Personnel, etc.

Your participation is very important and very much appreciated.  It will help the Coalition identify what matters most in improving special education services to children with disabilities in Ohio.  This work is even more important given the likelihood that state government policy makers will again turn their attention to reforming school funding in the midst of ongoing fiscal constraints and growing pressures to improve student achievement, including the achievement of those with disabilities.

Thank you for your consideration of this request.  Please feel free to pass this along to others or refer them to our website to participate in the survey.
