Launched in December 2017, The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation Adult Autism Resource Guide is a database of over 150 agencies and services throughout New Jersey and the United States dedicated to serving families and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 

Understanding family members and caregivers of autistic adults are too often over-looked in terms of their lifelong need for information and services, our partnership with DJFF aims to address gaps in service. The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation was the first not-for-profit and only all-volunteer run organization in the United States to focus on adult autism, and has been blazing trails since 2002. Their mission is to create paths leading to fulfilling and potential driven lives. 

This partnership also hosts the work of four research fellows whose placement settings include The Elizabeth M. Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, the Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center, MyGoalAutism, and our SSW Office of Field Education


 

As April is National Autism Awareness Month, we encourage you to make a gift to The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation Adult Autism Family Support Fellowship and Resource Guide Fund and show your support for families and autistic adults as we look to help navigate through this resource desert. 

Visit the database today at adultautism.rutgers.edu, or share additional resources applicable to adults with autism over the age of 18 by emailing our Office of Field Education
