This clinic provides free legal services to qualifying persons in our community arising from the challenges often faced by those with developmental disabilities. The topics we'll cover are guardianship, guardian advocacy, and supportive decision-making.

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.
#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.
THANK YOU to the Autism Services Grant Council (Autism License Plate) for honoring us with a grant to provide water safety instruction and training on autism to water instructors throughout our state! We are excited to be making a difference in the drowning prevention of children and adults on the spectrum and GREATLY appreciate the support of the Council and from ALL of those who have autism license plates.
