Autism New Jersey is looking to collect data from parents who have children with autism who exhibit severe challenging behavior. We are acutely aware of the service gap that exists for children and adults who experience challenging behavior.  

We are strongly advocating for a statewide adoption of an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment approach and an increase in existing program capacity. 

We strive to help help families every step of the way.  Your responses to this survey will be de-identified and used in our discussions with legislators and state officials as we work to bring attention to this under-served segment of the autism community.
