The Autism Society of America is proud to continue our Coronavirus Information Series with the second video created in partnership with MyHana, an autism support network designed to provide autism resources and support for parents and caregivers of autistic loved ones. 

On May 20, Autism Society of America CEO Chris Banks sat down to a conversation with Anne Holmes, Member of the Autism Society of America’s Panel of Professional Advisors, to discuss the transitional realities of Individuals Education Programs for children with autism during and post-COVID-19, including what considerations should be uniquely considered and how these programs have been affected by the pandemic.
