The New Hampshire Council on 
Autism Spectrum Disorders
Putting the Pieces Together in the Granite State
Members of the NH Council on ASD have been appointed as per the provisions of HB 1634.  They represent a broad cross-section of the agencies, organizations and professionals that support individuals with ASD, along with family members and a self advocate.  All Council meetings are open to the public.

Additionally, the Council has enlisted the help of eight work groups to look more closely at how to implement recommendations made by the NH Commission on ASD.  To learn more about these groups, click here.  Work groups welcome any NH citizen willing to commit to working toward the Council's goals and objectives.
More than 2000 New Hampshire children and youth experience a form of autism.
