Self-Advocate Advisory Board

In December 2021, SARRC introduced its first Self-Advocate Advisory Board. The Self-Advocate Advisory Board is a group of self-advocates who advise SARRC leadership on research, programs, clinical services, and marketing and communications efforts, to ensure that individuals with autism and their interests are represented in how SARRC advances its vision, mission, and strategic plan on behalf of the autism community.
