Re: More about Ohio on the list

AutismkKey.com received the following email today regarding Ohio:

To Whom it May Concern:

Please be advised that Ohio does not at this time have an autism specific waiver. Autism services can be obtained currently under some of the other waivers, however.

But we do have the following which adds to our autism services:

Bittersweet Farms - farmstead community for adults with autism. Offers a residential and day progarm. Works with area schools on transition. www.bittersweetfarms.org

Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI) - created by the Ohio General Assembly as a project of the Ohio Department of Education - Office for Exceptional Children. OCALI has spearheaded efforts to create a parent's manual, transition guidelines and regional collaboration. They are doing educational professional training and a multitude of other types of training. They are co-hosting the 2007 NATTAP Conference with the Autism Society of America. Services database, lending library, events calendar available on their webpage www.ocali.org.

Nisonger Center, Ohio State University, a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities provides a wealth of services for persons with autism. http://nisonger.osu.edu/
