We are pleased to announce that the 3rd edition of the UNLV CASD Autism Spectrum Resource Guide is now available!
Another change this year is that we have created a PDF copy of the guide, so that it is available to all members of our community. If you or your organization would like copies of the guide, please contact us at (702) 895-5836 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
