About Us

We are fueled by passion and the desire to empower every person with autism and their families.

People with autism have unique gifts and can contribute to their communities in many ways. We're fortunate to have them in our lives.

The best advocacy occurs with education, respect and the presumption of competence for all. ASF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and an affiliate of Autism Society of America.
