Being a Voice for Families
The Unumb Center for Neurodevelopment is proud to engage in public policy work on behalf of our clients and other individuals impacted by autism. We actively keep our staff, board, and families aware of policy issues and encourage them to make their voices heard at the local, state, and national levels.
We routinely schedule events during Autism Awareness Month (April) and throughout the year to increase to increase the public’s understanding of autism, such as our local “Light It Up Blue” celebration and our walks to the State House. Our staff speak at conference and community events to spread autism awareness and acceptance, as well as to share the benefits of ABA intervention.
Our founders Lorri and Dan Unumb continue to be internationally prominent leaders in autism advocacy, law, and policy. They are the authors of the first-ever comprehensive textbook on legal issues related to ASD, called “Autism and the Law,” and the founders of the annual Autism Law Summit.
