Donate today to change the life of a young adult or adult with Autism Spectrum Disorder!

Imagine being in an environment that is caring, positive, and all-inclusive - where people can understand and relate to others who live with autism in adulthood. Compare that with a negative environment, where others cannot relate to the challenges of everyday living on the autism spectrum. Which sounds better?


Your gift today can help bring hope for adults and young adults on the autism spectrum and their parents and caretakers.  These individuals seek an autism support group to meet other like-minded individuals that that can relate to.  Make a difference today!  Thank you.


Online registration for the 3rd Annual Southeast Adult Symposium is taking place NOW!  For more information, click the Conference link on the left side of this page.  You will be able to register from the Conference webpage.  More information will be added to the Symposium webpages as they become available.
