Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in Oregon and the world. If you haven't someone on the autism spectrum yet, you will soon! That means ASO has a big mission: to provide information and resources; educational workshops; support groups for kids, teens, adults, parents, grandparents and siblings; family fun events; "Take a Break on ASO" respite evenings to caregivers; and more - all without charge to everyone impacted by autism in Oregon (and SW Washington) throughout the autism spectrum and throughout the lifespan. No membership fees and you don't need an official autism diagnosis. We have only 1 full-time and 1 part-time employee so we rely on our wonderful volunteers to make our programs happen throughout the state. We raise all of our own funding, and all of it remains in Oregon and SW Washington. Please contact us with any questions or if we can help. See our website at www.AutismSocietyOregon.org for more information.
