IATF Seeking Parents/Guardians’ Feedback on Understanding of the High School (Secondary) Transition Process

April 30 @ 12:00 am

The Illinois Autism Task Force (IATF) Transition sub-committee is seeking parents/guardians’ feedback on their understanding of the high school (Secondary) transition process. The survey is designed for parents/guardians of children with autism (all ages-young adults) who have an IEP.


The Autism Transition Subcommittee is conducting this survey to assess parent/family knowledge when it comes to understanding services available for the autism population leading up to and during their high school transition years. By gaining understanding of this, the IATF as well as autism-based service entities and schools can target their messaging and parent education to better guide parents, students, and families with the goal of improving student success after high school.


The survey will be available beginning September 1, 2023, ending  April 30, 2024:

If you are a parent/guardian of a child with Autism, please follow the above link and complete the survey. The survey should take 15 minutes and your responses are completely anonymous. We genuinely appreciate your participation and hope our results will help us in our work to prepare families and improve services in Illinois as students transition from school to adulthood.


The Illinois Autism Task Force: Public Act 93-773 (2004) established the Illinois Autism Task Force (IATF) under the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) as a means of addressing issues presented by the growing number of children and adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The task force provides information and recommendations to the Secretary of the Department of Human Services to best serve individuals with autism in Illinois.
