Hello, TAP Family!

We are excited to announce the launch of our new ADA-compliant website, re-designed based on feedback from you!

Last summer, The Autism Project sent out a survey via Constant Contact to gather feedback about our programs, website, and website offerings. We wanted to know what about our website could be improved and what kinds of online resources would be most useful to you.

We received a lot of great feedback, but there were two things we heard across the board:
● Our website was a useful resource overall, but a bit outdated and at times difficult to navigate.

● Our site audience would benefit from even more current, comprehensive information about interventions & treatments for ASD and other developmental disabilities.

Our new website addresses these 2 pieces of critical feedback, and others, in hopes that the website will serve our TAP family even better.

Navigation on our new site is more central and consistent. You can use the menu in the upper left-hand corner and the blocks at the bottom of each page to move through sections and subsections; clicking the TAP logo in the header will always bring you right back to the main page.

You’ll find new pages on our site with more comprehensive information about interventions and treatments, community resources, and the care coordination resources available via the Rhode Island Medical Home Portal, to name a few.

You can find up-to-the-minute alerts on the main page, in the alerts bar that currently highlights our new design (and that brought you here). Social groups cancellations and any other time-sensitive information will be posted there, as well as in the social groups subsection under the “Up-To-The-Minute Info” page.

Importantly, our site also reflects TAP’s HRSA grant-funded work to expand our reach to parents and professionals who are seeking information about child development, developmental screenings and evaluations, or resources about developmental concerns. Concerned parents and family members seeking developmental screenings or evaluations can reach out to our Family Support Team via our website; information about developmental milestones, monitoring, and screening can be found on our Community Resources page.

We hope the new design and content serves you well. We are so grateful to our TAP community for your input and engagement and can’t wait to hear what you think!

If you have questions or feedback about our new website, please reach out to TheAutismProject@lifespan.org.
