Autism 201: The State of Autism in 2021

Autism 201: The State of Autism in 2021 – Advocating for Supports and Services in WA State

A call to action!

2020 was a tough year: Kids lost access to vital therapies; online learning mostly left behind students with disabilities; and the state floated cuts to long-term supports that would affect job coaching, residential support, respite and more for youths and adults with disabilities and their families. Individuals with autism and intellectual and developmental disabilities were left isolated, frustrated, and cut off from meaningful life activities. So what’s ahead for 2021 and the state legislature? You can make a difference! How to get involved to influence what happens next.

Panelists:

Stacy Dym, The Arc of Washington State
Jeremy Norden-Paul, The Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council (DDC)
Adana Protonentis, Sr. consultant Kindred Leaders, mom of autistic son, member of DDC
Ramona Hattendorf, Advocacy Director, The Arc of King County
