dc.description.abstract The difficulties parents may face when looking to gather information concerning autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be endless. This includes finding resources that are valid, as well as sifting through the wealth of information found on the topic of ASD. This project presents a manual that is designed to serve both parents and professionals information concerning ASD as it relates specifically to the greater Sacramento area. This area includes, but is not limited to: Antelope, Auburn, Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Galt, Lincoln, Rancho Cordova, Roseville, West Sacramento and Wilton. This resource manual gives parents of children with ASD a more localized source of information and services available to them and their child. These services include but are not limited to: behavioral interventions, books, educational rights, online resources and support groups. Additionally, this resource manual will provide parents with an array of valid evidence-based information already noted in articles and journals, but condensed into a single source. By supplying this information, parents may be able to: (a) take a more empowering role as an advocate in their child’s interventions; (b) become more involved in the special education process as it pertains to the Sacramento region; (c) benefit from local services that this region provides; (d) gain access to more individualized support for both the child and themselves; and (e) participate in events of awareness and support regarding the disability. en
