Pennsylvania’s Department of Public Welfare, Bureau of Autism Services, has partnered with three consortia of universities, hospitals, and autism service providers across the commonwealth and have received grants to create three ASERT (Autism Services, Education, Research and Training) regional autism centers. The mission of the ASERT Centers is to enhance the lives of Pennsylvanians with autism, of all ages and abilities, by improving regional access to quality services and interventions, providing information and support to families, training professionals in best practices and facilitating collaboration among providers of services throughout the commonwealth.
