Where do we go in Washington state to get connected when it comes to helping individuals living with autism? What services are accessible from the state? How do we plug in? How do we navigate the often confusing and complex systems maze? Good information leads to better choices and decisions for people on the autism spectrum or with other developmental disabilities and differences, yet survey data shows many families say they do not get enough information to effectively participate in planning services for their family members. This is of concern to Autism Empowerment and other advocacy and support organizations that believe clear, concise information from trusted sources is critical to every family’s ability to access resources and care for individuals on the autism spectrum. Listen in today as Autism Empowerment Radio interviews Eva Rooks, Communication and Planning Manager for the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council. We will talk about current priorities for the DDC and we'll learn how to plug into and navigate the WA state Informing Families, Building Trust website, blog and informational outreach. Sponsored by the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council, in collaboration with the Division of Developmental Disabilities and others, the IFBT goal is to provide information about issues, services and supports that make a difference in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
