The purpose of the survey is to better understand your needs, priorities, and interests around ASD in order to guide the development and delivery of ASD information services by community libraries across the state. Please share the survey with your patrons, friends and all Illinois residents who have been personally or professionally  affected by ASD.

The survey is available in English and Spanish and can be reached through the following link:
