What We Do
Everyone deserves to live fully. At the core of the Autism Society’s work is our goal to influence meaningful change in support of the Autism community.
Create Change Together
The Autism Society supports federal policies and initiatives that facilitate greater access to the workforce and increase the employment rate for people with Autism.
The Autism Society believes that all people with Autism should have access to high quality, affordable health care that meets their specific needs.
The Autism Society monitors federal policies and regulations ensuring children with Autism have access to general education and inclusive educational experiences under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Home & Community-Based Services
The Autism Society supports policies that permit those living with Autism to live in inclusive, safe, accessible, and affordable communities of their choice, and be provided with a comprehensive range of support and accommodations for meaningful engagement within the community.
Budget & Appropriations
The Autism Society advocates for sufficient federal funding to support people with Autism to live fully in the community.
Capitol Connection Newsletter
Capitol Connection is the official public policy and advocacy newsletter from the Autism Society. It provides information and analysis on federal legislation and regulations impacting people with Autism and other disabilities.
Our affiliates work to advocate at the local, state, and federal levels to help people with Autism and their families live fully. The State Advocacy page is intended to help affiliates and other allies to more effectively advocate at the state level.
