Agency and Therapy Providers

Thanks to recommendations from members of the Autism Society of Greater Phoenix, we have compiled listings of professional services and providers in Arizona who work with individuals and families on the autism spectrum.

This directory has taken shape over the years, expanding as new recommendations are made. All entries in the latest version of the Resource Guide are agencies and/or providers that have been deemed helpful by consumers.

Their listing should not; however, be considered an endorsement or recommendation either by the Autism Society of Greater Phoenix or its Board of Directors.

For convenience, all entries are listed alphabetically by clinic, organization or private practitioner.

If you know of a service or provider that you think should be included, please submit to Cynthia Macluskie. Make sure you include the organization’s name, complete address, phone number and email address. You may also include a brief statement of services provided. Please also include your name, phone number, and email address.

We hope that you find the Resource Guide helpful in locating appropriate services for your children and families.

If you want to search vendors who have contracts with DDD and Home and Community Based Services click HERE.  You can search by provider type and by zip code.
