The Tennessee Autism Plan is working towards a comprehensive, coordinated system of health care and related services for Tennessee children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders and related developmental disabilities.
Piecing together this state plan will depend on input from families, providers, professionals, funders and policymakers. Please consider providing input in one of the following ways:
The Tennessee Disability Coalition, the Tennessee Autism Summit Team (a broad-based group that includes autism organizations, state agencies, and other interested parties), and the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center are conducting a statewide, web-based survey.

Information will be used to improve services and service coordination for children with autism and other related disabilities.
This survey should take approximately 25-30 minutes to complete. Responses are entirely voluntary and anonymous.
