NCSA blog and social media posting:

Consistent with our mission, we feature posts that further any of the following goals:

  • Educating the public and policymakers about severe forms of autism and related disorders, and how they require special attention and services

  • Promoting serious discourse regarding policy reform and expansion of needed services to serve the growing population affected by severe forms of autism and related disorders

  • Promoting research into therapeutics for, neurobiology of, and causes of severe forms of autism and related disabilities

  • Promoting acceptance and awareness of individuals, families, and caregivers affected by severe forms of autism and related disorders by giving voice to their realities and needs

While we strive to post information, stories, and ideas that further our mission, any posts or blogs written by others (not signed by NCSA) represent the opinions and views of those authors, not NCSA. Posts written by NCSA board members represent the opinions of that member and not necessarily of NCSA as a whole. Inclusion of information in our blog or social media does not represent an endorsement, and omission does not imply disapproval.
