COVID -19 and Autism

When the state lockdown began in early March, Autism New Jersey developed the following information, resources, and articles to help families and providers navigate the services in place to help individuals with autism through the extended COVID-19 quarantine.

We’ve been able to share relevant, accurate information in a timely manner during a fluid situation of great uncertainty.

Autism New Jersey has remained focused on our mission to be a resource for the autism community, and we will continue to do so as we begin to move through the stages of reopening.

We recognize that there are many questions and complex considerations, and we are working hard to address these substantial issues and provide our expertise and stakeholder perspectives as plans are developed.

During this time, we’re proud to say that not one call to our Helpline has gone unanswered. If you need assistance, call us at 800.4.AUTISM or

We offer the following basic tips for your consideration; some may not be feasible in your life on certain days or at all. The challenges you may be facing may far exceed some of these recommendations.

The priority right now is the safety of your loved one(s) with ASD and everyone else in the household. These are simply general strategies intended to help manage these unprecedented circumstances. Try what you can, call us for support, and stay as safe as possible.

To help, we have compiled these resources aimed at reducing anxiety and restoring a sense of routine during the COVID-19 pandemic.
