Welcome to the Autism Society of Texas

The Autism Society of Texas changes lives by connecting families and individuals to community resources and support throughout Texas. Offerings include advocacy, education events, Information & Referrals, support meetings; on-line networking opportunities; Sensory Friendly films; and fun family activities. We rely on donations to support our work and keep services free for families and autistic adults. Make a donation here.

Education

The Autism Society is committed to educating people about autism and various interventions.  In addition to families who live with autism every day, we also work to educate members of the community, such as first responders or a hair salon, on how they can serve individuals on the autism spectrum.

Recreation
