The Howard County Autism Society launched an updated website with new online tools for families helping children and others with autism (http://www.howard-autism.org). Howard County has the largest per capita population of children with autism in Maryland, according to the Autism Society.

The website’s new Special Education News Center provides parents, educators and therapists with a collection of resources designed to help them understand, access and succeed in the world of special education. A grant from the Howard County Department of Citizen Services with additional support from the Hussman Foundation funded the development of the online resource (http://specialed.howard-autism.org).

In addition, the website offers special publications and newsletters about autism as well as information about caring for people with autism, support groups, special events and autism in schools.

“The new site provides an easy-to-use interface for our organization to modify and add information as well as easily access the site’s analytic data. We’re very pleased with the end result and look forward to expanding our reach and our mission utilizing all that this new website will provide us,” said Roger Thibaudeau, president of the Howard County Autism Society.

NextLOGiK, based in Columbia, Md., designed the website. NextLOGiK delivers comprehensive technology services ranging from custom website design, mobile application development and user-experience design to creation and delivery of complex enterprise web applications and managed network services.

The Howard County Autism Society serves individuals on the autism spectrum, their families and their communities by providing information, support and advocacy; by promoting awareness of autism that values the dignity and uniqueness of each individual; and by working to improve the quality of and access to services and educational opportunities.
