Paul Aronsohn, the New Jersey Ombudsman for Individuals with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities and Their Families, will deliver the keynote address of the Ocean County Library’s 2023 Autism Resources Fair, 12 p.m. Saturday, April 15, in the Toms River Branch.

The office helps individuals and families through New Jersey’s system of care, seeks input from them for improvements, and ensures that they are represented in policy decisions that affect them.
