Communication and Meetings Structure

Due to COVID, the AE has been meeting internally to discuss next steps with Lifecourse tools.

Goals, next steps or actions plans

The AE Intake/Waiver Manager completed the Lifecourse Ambassador Series. The AE is reviewing AE/Eligibility tools and are referring individuals to the Parent Network upon Intake, if needed. In August 2020, the AE and the SCO participated in a presentation by ASERT on using the Lifecourse tools with individuals with Autism. The AE will be meeting with Lou Randall of the Autism Connection to discuss Advocacy and Support Groups for individuals with Autism and their families. The AE Intake/Waiver Manager tracks data on the number of individuals presenting for Intake, as compared to the information reported by the schools on the individuals diagnosed with Autism.
