Easterseals Coalition Serving Texas (ECSTX) has received concerning reports from families regarding increasing barriers to receiving a diagnosis and services for Autism. For this reason, ECSTX is distributing this survey statewide to assess barriers. The survey is available in both English and Spanish. We would greatly appreciate it if you could take or share this survey with your networks! We hope to use the results of this survey to craft compelling recommendations for the 87th Texas legislature.

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is hosting a series of Listening Sessions across Texas to learn how we can improve disability services as we make future plans. The sessions will engage discussion on services for a range of disabilities and anyone is welcome to participate. We encourage people with disabilities and their supporters, services/care providers, and community organizations to attend. HHSC staff will be on site to answer questions and refer people to appropriate contacts.
