Thanks to WVLT for covering ASDhub yesterday with this article! We're so excited about this new resource and how it's going to improve the lives of those impacted by autism in East Tennessee!
The directory is the compilation of a variety of company and resource listings for individuals and families with autism in the East Tennessee area, and is already home to over 300 resources in 23 different main categories.
There are many ways to find what you’re looking for on ASDhub:
Whether you're claiming your company that is already listed on ASDhub or you would like to add your business into our diverse directory, here are a few easy-to-follow directions that can get you started!
If you are the owner of a listing or would like to claim your listing on ASDhub, fill out this easy form to get the latest updates! This email list will allow you to receive information on how to maximize your visibility to clients, helpful tips on updating and accessing your listing in the directory, and general updates about ASDhub that will enable you to share your services with more individuals and families.
The goal of the compilation of these listings is to become one comprehensive resource directory for all things autism in the community. ASDhub is here to be an easy-to-use, one stop shop for individuals, families, and professionals.
To make this as convenient as possible, our website has a very accessible design. At your first glance, you see options to search the site by keyword, location, or through the categorized directory.
We love partnering with other organizations to better serve families impacted by autism in communities all across East Tennessee, and were so happy to partner once again with the Chattanooga Autism Center's to put on annual local Christmas parties. Check out the story about the events from Dave Buck, Executive Director, Chattanooga Autism Center.
Autism Society of East TN recently received this request for survey participation in an autism research project.
Hello. My name is Kevin Carroll. I am a student at Yorktown High School in Westchester County, NY.
In doing background research on strategies for helping children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, I found that there is a lot of research on stress in caregivers of children with autism and on support groups. What struck me was that there are very few support groups that emphasize the reduction of parental stress, which may weaken treatment outcome for both the child and the parent. My goal is to address this gap in research.
In order to achieve my goal, again, I need your help in reaching out to the members of your support group. Completion of the survey is anonymous and voluntary.
I am hoping that this research may help us to design a new model of autism support groups and parental training workshops, which will hopefully address a myriad of issues that families with autism face.
Here is the link to the Survey. If you have any questions and/or would like to receive the results in the upcoming months, please email me or email my teacher, Mr. Blueglass.
Thank you very much,
