Mission

To unify and promote initiatives aimed at improving Kentucky's system of care for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their families.

Vision

  • Improve coordination of autism resources within the system of care supporting children and adults with autism and help make those resources available to families and self-advocates.
  • Be the center of a communication network sharing autism-related information among state agencies.
  • Provide administrative support to the Advisory Council on Autism Spectrum Disorder to unify and promote initiatives aimed at improving Kentucky's system of care.
