VIP outcomes: 2018

In 2018, Virtual Insight Panel (VIP) members reviewed the Autism Resource Portal and key employment messages.

Website review: Autism Resource Portal
In summer 2018, VIP members provided feedback for the Autism Resource Portal. This feedback will be used to make the site more user friendly for people with autism and their families. For example, VIP members recommended:

  • Adding more Minnesota-based resources to support the original task force goal of serving as a resource portal
  • Making the site easier to navigate for people who are on the spectrum
  • Reducing distractions on individual pages
  • Improving organization of content and categories (home, education, community, transition, technology, health care)

Document review: Key employment messages
In spring 2018, more than 60 VIP members provided feedback about key employment messages that will be used by multiple state agencies that help people with disabilities find employment. VIP members recommended:

  • Clarifying the target audience
  • Providing more details about available resources and next steps
  • Better describing how work can impact all aspects of a person's life
