Autism Directory Launches In East Tennessee

Thursday, January 21, 2016

The Autism Society of East Tennessee has launched a fully-featured autism directory through www.asdhub.org. The new site has over 300 different autism-related listings for families and individuals to view, with more to be added over the coming months.

There are many ways to search the directory, making ASDhub a site to use not only for those families and individuals affected by autism, but also for businesses who have an autism related service to provide. 

ASDhub is designed to connect individuals, families, and educators in East Tennessee with services and resources based on their needs. The directory sorts information based on category and location, giving those in East Tennessee the opportunity to identify local resources. In addition, ASDhub provides information on events and support groups to assist in networking and relationship building. For companies looking to add their listing, ASDhub makes that process possible in four steps. 

After acknowledging the variety and growing number of resources East Tennessee offers, the Autism Society teamed up with Autism Site Knoxville to develop the expanding directory. These groups are working to add as many autism related services as possible to maximize the use of ASDhub for individuals, families and professionals.
