Autism Identification Cards are currently being developed and will be available for those with ASD this year. The project is being headed by the Alabama Department of Public Health and is a result of legislation passed last year. To learn more and/or be notified when these cards become available, visit the ASA's website.
A statewide Assessment of the Transportation Needs of Individuals with Developmental Disabilities is being conducted, with support from the Alabama Council on Developmental Disabilities. There will be a public forum in every county in Alabama to gain information. Online surveys are also available. Individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, agencies, and transportation providers are all urged to participate. Contact email@example.com for more information or questions.
