It is with a great feeling of collaboration and partnership we announce a plan to elevate and ensure that the Autism Plan for Georgia is delivered to individuals and families living with the challenges of autism spectrum disorders.
March 27, 2014,, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced its updated report on the prevalence of autism, indicating the number of children with autism continues to rise. The current estimate is now 1 in 68 children under the age of 8 are diagnosed with autism in the United States each year.

The vision for Georgia is that high-quality, family and person-centered, comprehensive, and coordinated systems of services and supports are accessible and available to all children, youth and adults with autism and related disorders. These services and supports are community-based, geographically convenient, culturally and linguistically appropriate, and are designed to assist children to reach their full potential and improve their quality of life. These systems require financial support from federal, state, and local governments, as well as the private sector, which are more likely to be provided when the community understands their importance, views them as cost effective, and feels that they are being managed responsibly and transparently.
