Our mission is to create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully. Established in 1973, we are the oldest Autism organization in Arizona. We offer education, training, social events and support to our members. We pride ourselves in advocating on behalf of our community to improve the systems of care.
We know what it’s like raising a loved one with Autism. Our Executive Director, Community Director and the majority of our Board of Directors and volunteers are parents of someone on the spectrum and/or identify as Neurodiverse. One of the most important things we can do is connect with others who understand the challenges and blessings that come with raising a loved with a disability. It’s equally important for Autistic youth and adults to feel supported and valued. You can learn about what we do here.
We invite you to attend our comprehensive 101 training series to help you learn how to navigate the systems of care in Arizona, how to keep your loved one safe across all stages of life and learn about the valuable resources and supports into adulthood. The knowledge you receive will create a ripple effect; allowing you to help others.
Come and join us at one of our events and support group meetings around The Valley. We have meetings for parents and caregivers and events for Autistic individuals of all ages. We would love to meet you!
