COVID-19 and Autism in NJ

September 02, 2020

A central hub of coronavirus resources for the autism community

When the state lockdown began in early March, Autism New Jersey developed information, resources, and articles to help families and providers navigate the services in place to help individuals with autism through the extended COVID-19 quarantine.  Autism New Jersey has remained focused on our mission to be a resource for the autism community, and we will continue to do so as we begin to move through the stages of reopening.
