Resource Partner (in PROMISE) Announcement: Organization for Autism Research
Partners in PROMISE’s network is constantly expanding across military and civilian divides in order to form Partnerships that will help our exceptional community. We were asked to share our story with the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) and found that the organization had so much to offer our families!
The Organization for Autism Research (OAR) first published “A Guide for Military Families” in 2010, and released an updated version in 2019. This comprehensive resource provides expert information on Department of Defense and service policies related to autism; coverage for autism services within the military healthcare system; tips and advice relative to transitions such as PCS moves; and more.
The guide’s companion website, Operation Autism, is regularly updated with the latest information about military healthcare, and includes a searchable database of local resources – including schools, EFMP contact information, and ABA providers accepting TRICARE – organized by military base.
