Family Resource Center

Welcome to our Family Resource Center. We have gathered resources specific to Maine families and professionals, as well as some important National and Federal agencies and organizations that can provide assistance. In addition, we offer electronic copies of our Maine Parent Guides to Autism Spectrum Disorders, a publication produced by MAIER especially for Maine families. Our 2nd Edition includes content on augmentative and alternative communication, safety issues and information for adults on the spectrum. If you are a family impacted by autism spectrum disorders, and would like a print copy of the Parent Guide, be sure to let us know and we will send one to you at no cost to you.
