Autism Resource Team

The Autism Resource Team is a group of human services and mental health professionals brought together to address the increasing need for ASD services within Steuben County. The team has developed comprehensive ASD programs that implement the concept of universal design meant to benefit all individuals regardless of ability.

The team is dedicated to continuous development and training among Arc of Steuben associates, family members of people with ASD and our business and community partners.

In the past 12 months, the Autism Resource Team has:

  • Developed and implemented a Multi-Sensory Environment at the Arc of Steuben’s Industrial Park campus
  • Purchased three iPads that are currently being used by the Speech and Language Pathologist to improve communication skills
  • Conducted numerous community training sessions on knowing someone with ASD and behaviors commonly associated with ASD

The team’s focus on a person-centered approach and continuous training makes it one of the preeminent resources in Steuben County on programs and services for people with ASD.
