Support for people living with autism
There are a number of charitable events and fundraisers throughout the year in which we need volunteers to help accomplish our goals.
ASO is a non-profit organization. We depend on fund raising and donations to sponsor our programs. Help send an autistic child to camp, help fund an educational workshop for parents of autistic children or help us grow our lending library of books on autism.
Taking care of a child or adult on the autistic spectrum can be challenging. Parents and other caregivers often don't have enough time for themselves and need a break to re-energize. To help, ASO launched its popular "Take A Break on ASO" program in 2007. Since then, we have provided over 300 parents and other caregivers with gift certificates to wonderful local restaurants, passes to first-run movies and paid for respite care for their child(ren) - including adult children - on the autistic spectrum.
