The Nebraska Department of Education, Special Populations Office, oversees the Nebraska ASD Network. Five ASD Regions have been established in order to serve regional needs. The State ASD Network Coordinator coordinates state and regional training. The Nebraska Department of Education also works collaboratively with representatives of the University of Nebraska System. University professionals serve in an advisory capacity regarding curriculum development.

The goals of the Nebraska ASD Network are to:

Build and enhance the capacity of Nebraska schools and families in supporting children across the spectrum of autism disorders.
Offer training and technical assistance to Nebraska educators providing services to students across the autism spectrum from birth to age 21.
