Survey on Need for Help Navigating Autism Services
Purpose of the Survey
Many autistic individuals and their families struggle to understand autism and access services after they or their child has been determined to be autistic. They may also face challenges at different points thereafter.
A service that many have found helpful before and after receiving an autism determination is called service navigation. Service navigators could help arrange for the evaluation, support people through the evaluation process, help them understand autism 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 determination (or at other points along the way). The information gathered in this survey will be used to help shape Oregon policy on navigation services.
