About Autism Online

 

About Us

Since 2002, Danya has developed and evaluated a number of educational products for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and the caregivers, professionals, and advocates who work with them. As we prepared to take these programs to market, we realized that, while there are many Web sites with products and information about autism, there is no one online resource for individuals to go to find research-based, high-quality products that meet the needs of individuals with ASD.

AutismOnline is the only Web site of its kind devoted to providing research-based, effective, high-quality resources, products, and information on ASD across the lifespan. Products are geared toward individuals with autism, as well as their caregivers, teachers, professionals, paraprofessional, and advocates.

Our mission to provide products for all individual affected by ASD—including individuals with ASD themselves, caregivers, advocates, teachers, and professionals—makes AutismOnline a unique and extensive resource for the autism community.

History

AutismOnline was initially developed by the parent of a young girl with autism. Her vision was to have a Web site that would provide resources to people with autism and their caregivers all around the globe. When daily demands prevented her from keeping the Web site current, she approached us at Danya because she knew about our work and dedication to improving the lives of individuals with ASD. Danya began managing the site in early 2009.

Adding Products to the AutismOnline Web Site

To ensure all the products on AutismOnline are of high quality, we established four criteria to determine whether a program, product, or resource (free or sold) will be included on our Web site. Each product must meet basic criteria in each of the following areas. Each product must be:

  • Research-based
  • High-quality
  • Affordable
  • Useful
