Home: Welcome

Our mission.
We create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully.

Our vision.

Creating a world where everyone in the Autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it. 

Our values.

Dignity, 

where the value and self-determination of every individual is upheld

Equity, 

where everyone with Autism achieves the highest possible quality of life

Inclusion, 

where every person is integrated into society without barriers or exceptions in a collaborate environment

Diversity, 

where everyone is respected for their unique and individual differences

Integrity

where we conduct ourselves with honor, truth, and respect in our thoughts, words and actions

Our manifesto.

Because the experience of Autism is not one thing. Because it is many things. And because the connection between those experiences is you. 

 

Because we see you. The way you think. The dreams you hold. The talents you bring. Because you can't be categorized into neat little diagnostic boxes. Because you break the mold. 

 

Because sometimes you're quiet. Because sometimes you need help reaching for where you belong. Because sometimes what happens is not always right or fair or just. Because there are keys to every door that looks locked. 

Because no matter how you were born, the person you are is infinite--and you are the only you there is. 

Because Autism is not going away, neither are we. 

The Autism Society. 

The connection is you.™
