Abstract

Through the Department of Human Services in the State of Oregon, children with autism can access varying services, although, in the rural communities of Oregon, the delivery of those services becomes difficult. Rural availability is affected as members of the rural communities are less knowledgeable of the practices involved in administering effective services, instruction, and interventions to children with developmental disorders. The aim of this thesis is to identify areas within Umatilla County, Oregon where services and support systems are in place, or not in place. The population with whom this study was conducted includes individuals that have recent or past experience or relationships with children with autism living in Umatilla County, Oregon. The participants were asked to complete surveys consisting of questions relating to services they currently or in the past have provided to children with autism, questions relating to the delivery of those services, and questions relating to what type of support services they know of or have been involved in regarding children with autism or their family members. Data acquired addressed the already existing services and support systems and identify areas within the region where possible gaps or weaknesses exist, thus aiding in important knowledge and groundbreaking ideas into the need of autism-related services and supports in Umatilla County, Oregon.
