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, our Navigating Autism program, connection groups, and education events. We rely on donations to support our work and keep services free for families and Autistic adults.

New Look, Exceptional Support – Reintroducing the Autism Society of Texas!

“For us, it’s important that the brand creates visibility for the wide spectrum of individuals with Autism. There are self-advocates living fully independent lives, and then there are families like ours, where our children will need significant support throughout their lives. We want to see more connections being made between these groups,” said the Fletchers.

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.

Registration & Information: COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics

People with disabilities are the second largest group dying of COVID-19, which makes removing barriers to vaccinations so crucial. The Autism Society of Texas received a federal grant to provide COVID-19 educational materials and a series of free Autism-Friendly COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics.  Autism-Friendly clinics reduce the sensory rich issues that may be a barrier to vaccinations. Using calming strategies and an Autism-friendly team and environment can drastically improve outcomes for people with sensory sensitivity and sensory overload. Any child or adult with Autism or any disability, as well as their parents/caregivers may receive their first, second, or booster COVID-19 Vaccine. For more information or to register for our San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, or Austin clinics, visit our COVID-19 Information page. We are also seeking Autism professionals to volunteer.
