NorthEast Regional ASD Network

The Nebraska ASD Network is statwide plan from providing support to schools, districts, and parents of children with Austin Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

In the late 1990's educators and parents requested the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) Office of Special Populations take a lead role in assisting schools to develop knowledge and expertise in autism so that students age birth through 21 are provided appropriate services that meet their needs.

An Ad Hoc Committee was appointed by the Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC) for the purpose of creating a State Plan for services to children with ASD. The State Plan was completed in 2000 and implementation began in Spring 2002.

The State ASD Plan divides our state into 5 Regions. Each region has a ASD Director, ASD Coordinator and ASD Team.
