A group of local parents teamed up with NEDSRA to bring a local chapter of the Autism Society of Illinois (ASI) to the residents of northeast DuPage County.

ABA4Autism.com and the Psychology Department at the University of Tennessee at Martin are conducting a second survey on the causes of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). This survey is for mothers of children with ASD as well as mothers of normally developing children who are ten years of age or younger. Mothers who participate in the survey will receive a free ABA program to teach their child to follow directions as well as free ABA mini programs for common problems like sharing. To take the survey please go to www.aba4autism.com. Thanks Dr.Gary Brown Professor and Chair Psychologist/HSP
