Welcome to the Indiana Information Network (INnetwork), a collaborative and easy-to navigate system of resources related to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) across the lifespan with specific focus on:

  • Individuals
  • Families
  • Communities

The INformation Network is the result of combined efforts by representatives and work groups affiliated with the Indiana Interagency Autism Coordinating Council (IIACC), a statewide coalition of stakeholders across the ASD community aimed at addressing the gaps in services available for individuals, families, and other consumers.

The site was created to provide resources to support efforts towards the goals represented in the Indiana Comprehensive State Plan for Individuals with ASD.  Based on this Comprehensive Plan and its stated priority areas, the INformation Network is designed to provide community members with information, data, and resources related to these state-level priority areas:

  • Family and Professional Partnerships
  • Early and Continuous Developmental and Medical Screening for ASD Responses
  • Access to necessary Health, Mental, Education, and Social Services
  • Successful Youth Transition to Adult Services, Work, and Independence
  • Adequate Public/Private Insurance for Individuals Affected by ASD
  • Justice and Public Safety
  • Cultural Responsivity

HANDS in Autism®  facilitates and coordinates the IIACC and INformation Network efforts, as well as manages the data obtained from statewide needs assessments, evolution and development of the Plan, and progress related to status of services reflected within the Comprehensive State Plan.
