Survey on Need for Help Navigating Autism Services
DUE TO A FLOOD OF FAKE, NON-OREGON RESPONSES, WE HAVE TEMPORARILY SHUT THIS SURVEY DOWN. WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE WHILE WE FIGURE OUT HOW TO ENSURE THAT RESPONSES ARE COMING FROM THE PEOPLE WE ARE HERE TO SERVE, AUTISTIC INDIVIDUALS AND THEIR FAMILIES WHO LIVE IN OREGON. PLEASE TRY AGAIN IN A WEEK.
Purpose of the Survey
Many autistic individuals and their families struggle to understand autism and access services in the early days of an autism diagnosis and at different points thereafter. They are often on their own to discover the wide array of available services and to determine which ones are most suitable to their situation.
A service that many have found helpful before and after receiving a diagnosis is called service navigation. Service navigators could help people arrange for the evaluation, support them through the evaluation process, understand the diagnosis and the autistic person’s specific characteristics, and help the individual or family actually access the services they need.
The purpose of this survey is to document the level of need for service navigation for autism. We need to know if you had or would have appreciated help from a service navigator for the initial steps of dealing with the autism diagnosis (or at other points along the way). The information gathered in this survey will be used to help shape Oregon policy on navigation services.
Who Should Fill Out the Survey
This survey should be completed by the primary caregiver of an autistic person or the autistic person if they were 15 years of age or older when diagnosed (one survey per autistic person). If you are both, please fill out the survey once for yourself and again for any autistic children you may have. Click on the link below to complete the survey.
Thank you for sharing your input!
