About Us

AutismCommunityLogoWho is Autism Community?

Autism Community is a charitable organization founded by parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders to support and facilitate the development of services and strategies to meet the needs of families like ours in the Niagara Region.   As parents ourselves, we understand the need for support for the day-to-day challenges of living with autism and the importance of sharing our experiences to build a community guided by a vision of understanding, inclusion and empowerment. Autism Community is 100% volunteer-run and is deeply committed to the idea of families, individuals with autism, service providers and communities working together to help individuals and families with the challenges of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and ensuring locally-supported programs are protected and managed locally.
