This bill is designed to make certain information available to the public that will promote autism awareness and enhance efforts at early detection and treatment of children with autism spectrum disorders. Specifically, the bill requires the Commissioner of Health to establish the "New Jersey Autism Website" in consultation with the various autism advocacy and service organizations in the State. The website is to include: a check list that may be used by parents or guardians of infants and toddlers to look for possible indications that a child may have autism or may be suspected to be on the autism spectrum; specific instructions on how to contact the Early Intervention Program established pursuant to section 2 of P.L.1993,c.309 (C.26:1A-36.7), public and private agencies and organizations in New Jersey that provide programs and services to children with autism, and support groups for families in the various geographic regions of the State, if the parent or guardian believes that a child may have autism or may be suspected to be on the autism spectrum; and other information as the commissioner determines appropriate to promote autism awareness and facilitate early detection and treatment of children with autism spectrum disorders. The bill further requires the commissioner to include a link to the "New Jersey Autism Website" on the Internet website of the Department of Health.
