Supports for Parents & Families
The Autism Project has been family-centered since its inception. We work hard to provide quality education, training, programming, and support to parents and families (biological and chosen) in service of our mission.
As parents of children with ASD ourselves, we also know that raising a child with ASD or other developmental disabilities can create a sense of isolation. We keep our lines open to listen to parents and families who might be going through a tough patch.
We offer many resources for parents and families of children with ASD and other developmental disabilities, including:
- Family Support services for families from early diagnosis of ASD or other developmental disabilities through transition to adult services and the workforce.
- Training Series for parents and caregivers on best practices for supporting individuals with developmental delays and diagnoses.
- Opportunities for parents and caregivers to connect, like our Facebook Support Group and our annual Imagine Walk & Family Fun Day.
- Advocacy for autistic individuals and their families to increase the availability of programs to support them.
Parents, caregivers, grandparents, and siblings are encouraged reach out to our Family Support Team. Whether your child is newly diagnosed, approaching a big transition, or struggling to maintain employment, our team will provide up-to-date resources and support you as you work through the details.
