Connected, Informed, and Empowered
The Autism Education Network's is pleased to announcce that our Online Advocacy Center will launch in July, 2004.
The Autism Education Network intends to extend its Web-enabled grassroots advocacy center to other autism related organizations to leverage the power of the autism community. The ultimate goal is to unite constituents through a virtual forum to make autism a national health priority.
Members will receive customized Email alerts, take-action letters, and petitions using comprehensive legislative databases regarding federal and state special education law directly affecting the autism community. Members will simply click on the link, personalize the letter or submit as is, and click the "send" button.
"Using the Internet to create an 'E-community', we dramatically increase our ability reach and serve more families and conversely improve the lives of more individuals with autism."
—Michele Waterman, Founder and Executive Director of the Autism Education Network.
Check our News Updates and Upcoming Events page frequently as well as our Legislative Updates. Working together as a virtual community, we no longer have to fight special education battles one family at a time, one IEP at a time. We can leverage our common interests and goals to preserve our children’s legal right to a free, appropriate, public education. The Autism Education Network's primary goal is to connect people through the Internet to influence and improve special education policy and programs for the autism community.
Until we find a cure, education is our best hope.
