The Autism News NetWORK trains adults with autism who are 18 and over in the use of journalism tools and techniques with the goal of building a television and internet news network focused on the complex world of Autism—treatment, research, education and family life. Educational programming about Autism for families, clinicians, teachers, and researchers will be written, produced, and directed by individuals with Autism. In addition to its educational mission, the Autism News NetWORK will provide critically-needed jobs for adults with Autism.
