Famílias azuis: ação pública pela política do Transtorno do Espectro Autista (TEA)

This article seeks to analyze the relationship between civil society and public authorities in the social participation of public policies for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The study focuses attention on the blue families of APAN – Friends of Autistic Parents of Ananindeua, in the metropolitan region of Belém/Pará. It is argued that joint interactions for the cause of autism allow advances in public actions. We seek to understand how the relationship between blue families and public authorities enables public action for ASD? It can be inferred that the blue families movement and its impacts make it possible to relate to public powers (executive, judiciary and legislative) with the strengthening of public actions for ASD and the solution of public problems, considering that the policies public institutions demand a management model with new collaborative arrangements between civil society and the State. It is concluded that APAN’s blue families have been contributing, even if limited and invisible, so that public policies aimed at people with ASD are effective and strengthened .
