After ASDhub launched in the fall of 2015, it took off into the new year gathering many new listings from the East Tennessee area and visitors asking questions about the site in general. Take a look at the details of how ASDhub has grown!
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 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.
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,
