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 help members of the community understand the disorder.  We can send written material on a wide variety of autism-related topics and, with enough lead time, provide speakers.  We also make a point to inform our constituents about trainings, workshops, and presentations around the region.  As resources allow, we sponsor educational programs and offer scholarships so that parents can attend conferences.  We are always looking for ways to collaborate on educational initiatives.
