My name is Susan Crowell and I am excited to be your Northeast Area Support Coordinator serving the northeast Indiana counties of Lagrange, Steuben, Dekalb, Noble, Whitley, Allen, Huntington, Wells, Adams.  I am a married, mother of two, and a lifelong of northeast Indiana.  Most recently, I was employed in Special Education with a local school system.

My journey with autism began with my son diagnosis 12 years ago.  So much has changed and for the better!    There are more resources for families, awareness and acceptance is growing daily and much shorter wait times for waiver, but we still have so much to do.  We need more services for adults,  employment barriers need to be removed, and Medicaid portability is necessary so that our loved ones on the spectrum can move throughout the country without losing their benefits.

My passion for creating new and greater opportunities for those affected by autism is what drives me.  Our children are different, not less, and should have the same opportunities afforded all in our communities.

I look forward to serving you and your family as we travel this journey together.
