Operation Autism is a web-based resource specifically designed to support military families that have children with autism. We Autism and Military Families Resourcesdeveloped this resource to:

  • Provide military families touched by autism with access to quality, evidence-based information about the disorder,
  • Identify sources of treatment and support on and off base,
  • Offer tips for dealing with some of the unique challenges military life poses for military dependent children with autism and their families,
  • Inform parents about their child’s educational rights and offer some practical strategies for success in the classroom.

Special thanks to the American Legion Child Welfare Foundation. Without its funding support, we could not have produced this valuable resource.
