The American Autism Association realizes that every parent wants the best for their children and family. Raising a child with autism can be difficult – whether it be the caretaking itself, or the pressures and misunderstanding from those around you. It is our goal to ease these hardships for families. We enable parents by providing them with access to autism related resources that will be helpful in a plethora of ways to someone with autism. We believe that every person affected by autism has the right to get access to quality resources that will aid them in development and building life skills.
We seek to advocate for all who are perceived as different, at any age, and from the highest of functioning forms of autism to the more intensive special needs cases. Educating our local and national communities on autism is a key aspect of how we advocate. We invite you to join our efforts to raise autism awareness to better the future of those living on the autism spectrum.
