HANDS in Autism® is pleased to announce upcoming dates for their Local Community Cadres (LCCs). LCCs are networks of families and professionals supporting and serving individuals affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder and other intellectual and developmental disabilities that are set up regionally. The LCCs have proven to be a great way to build networks of people representing families, schools, medical providers and others. These individuals partner to share resources, information and events within their communities, as well as helping HANDS in Autism® develop trainings and offer them in different communities based on input from the LLCs. HANDS in Autism facilitates these networks by holding web-based calls and live meetings and events. This year, the LCCs will be more integral in that they will be key informants from their communities as HANDS in Autism® leads the Indiana Interagency Autism Coordinating Council and the Comprehensive State Plan. For additional information on the HANDS LCCs, please visit the HANDS in Autism® LCC web page.
The following dates have been set for upcoming web based calls, click on the LCC region below for additional information. HANDS in Autism® will be present in the areas shortly after these scheduled calls with a FREE Next Steps workshop hosted by LCCs or their surrounding areas. There will be a live meeting in April 2015, with dates and locations set on the first scheduled web based call. Please go to the HANDS in Autism® LCC webpage to register for the web based calls.
