STATE FUNDING

Every state in the United States has a system to provide support for children with autism.  Each state may have different services, names for these systems, and ease of access, but there are autism resources available to help.  Although each state has their variations as to what is offered and how it is implemented, each state must follow the basic framework as described by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

See below for a selection of state resources where AST services are offered:
