ASF Hurricane Kits

distributed to families and first responders in FL

The Autism Society of Florida

was honored to gift several hurricane kits to families this year. Our kits included noise cancelling headphones, coloring books and cool sensory toys to keep the kids entertained in the event of a hurricane. In addition to reaching families across the state, ASF donated kits to fire stations in Florida, giving our First Responders the opportunity to make connections with children and families living with autism.

Tour de Force 4 Autism

A HUGE WIN FOR EVERYONE!

#TourdeForce4Autism is an Autism Society of Florida event providing adults with autism the opportunity to tour a police station and learn about law enforcement. This program gives officers a better understanding of people with autism by having up close and personal interactions and receive first hand knowledge.
