  • Autism Service Guidelines — Autism Service Guidelines for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder through the Lifespan has been expanded and revised from the initial guidelines developed by the Autism Task Force. In 2001, the Autism Task Force completed the birth through five guidelines in partnership with the Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps and the Bureau of Early Intervention Services of the Ohio Department of Health. It was the decision of the task force members to continue their efforts by writing guidelines for individuals with ASD/PDD ages six through twenty-one. The task force membership was expanded to include expertise in the areas of adolescents and adults with ASD/PDD. Additionally, a Community Transition committee was added. The Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council supported the effort by providing staff assistance. This final document is the result of  the effort of parents and professionals representing medical, educational, developmental disability and higher education programs ranging in focus from early childhood to adult service in collaboration with OCALI and the Autism Society of Ohio and funding from the Ohio Department of Education, Office for Exceptional Children.
