THE STORY:

Autism is the most common developmental disorder, with an incidence of 1 in every 88 children. The educational system is overwhelmed trying to meet the educational needs of this population. Research consistently supports the importance of early identification to improve outcomes. Parents and public school personnel are in critical need of functional evaluations and recommendations to meet the needs of individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

Children who receive intensive therapy make tremendous strides in overall functioning to resolve symptoms of the disorder and enhance the possibility of leading productive lives. This is why the primary objectives of the Eastern Illinois University Autism Center include the following:

  • Timely diagnostic evaluations to initiate intervention
  • Case management and consultation with families and school personnel
  • Treatment  to address specific communication, behavioral, or academic challenges
  • Transition support for students with ASD enrolled in the university
  • Resource center for information, support, and specific intervention services

 

Eastern Illinois University is a forward-thinking institution of higher learning that seeks to engage students through a combination of classroom training and opportunities for hands-on learning. We are proud of the integrative learning environment that has been created in our classrooms, especially as practiced within the current Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic. 

 

In establishing an Autism Resource Center, Eastern will further strengthen the integrative learning process while simultaneously offering the necessary resources to individuals with autism and their families without having to travel to a larger metropolitan area.  Donor support of this autism center will go directly to providing the necessary resources for the Center.  Online donations can be made at www.eiu.edu/giving.php.

The Autism Resource Center is in the drop-down menu under the College of Sciences. For additional information, go to www.eiu.edu/commdis or (217) 581-2712).
