Oklahoma Autism Network

The Tolbert Center is the home of the Oklahoma Autism Network (OAN), which serves as the administrative unit to facilitate planning, financing, and management of the Individuals with Autism and their Families, Oklahoma Plan.  OAN is the state's autism information and referral source for families and professionals providing both a toll free number and comprehensive website.  OAN works closely with the network of parent led organizations focused on ASD across the state, and provides a variety of trainings for state agencies, community organizations, families, and professionals as well as organizing and sponsoring the annual Statewide Autism Conference.  OAN also is involved with systems change activities such as training providers in SoonerStart, the state's early intervention program, in the use of the Screening Tool for Autism in Two-Year Olds (STAT).  Recently OAN completed a self-directed autism pilot program and currently is implementing an applied behavioral analysis research project for the Department of Human Services, Developmental Disabilities Services Division as outlined in Senate Bill 135.

The Oklahoma Autism Network is supported by funding from the Developmental Disabilities Service Division of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services and by the Oklahoma State Department of Education, Special Education Services.  For more information about OAN, the Oklahoma Family Center for Autism, and the Statewide Autism Conference go to the Oklahoma Autism Alliance Website.
