Pennsylvania Supreme Court Celebrates Autism Acceptance Month - Highlights the “Faces of Autism in the Courts”

AOPC logoPennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Kevin Dougherty, on behalf of the Court, is once again promoting autism acceptance throughout the court system, highlighting those behind the important work being done statewide.

“Pennsylvania is the first state in the nation to focus on identifying and supporting the needs of neurodiverse families within the court system, creating lasting change for those with an ASD coming through the court system." Dougherty said. "The people behind the work and their passion for judicial reform has changed lives and the face of the court system. They have given self-advocates and their families a voice and in doing so, have positioned Pennsylvania as a leader among states.”

To highlight the people supporting the Autism in the Courts initiative, throughout the month, the courts will be sharing information about autism and resources, services and support available statewide through its social media channels (Twitter-@PaCourts &  Facebook-@Pennsylvaniacourts) and website.
