Support


Since March 4, 2005, Families with ASD has been offering families touched by autism, a place to meet with other families to find fellowship, understanding, and support. We give families a chance to connect and share with others who have been touched by autism. 


Families with ASD's offers FREE Autism Family support group meetings for the whole family. We want you to bring your children and adults with autism and all their siblings to ALL of our FREE events.  

Families with ASD serves anyone touched by Autism, birth through adulthood. We are also a great resource for extended families, educators, and anyone who works with a child/adult with autism.  

We offer Free Autism Support Group meetings, socials, group outings, and holiday parties for the whole family. 


There is NO membership fee, or

charge for any of our meetings. 

Helping families get the much needed information about available autism resources for their family is very important to  Families with ASD's mission. 
Families with ASD disseminates information on local, state, and federal resources via the Autism Family Resource Center.  

The Autism Yellow Pages©, created by Families with ASD's founder, Julia Ann Smith, is handed out Free to families at every Autism Expo.  The Autism Yellow Pages is a great resource for families.

In 2014, Families with ASD has expanded their Autism Expo and Autism Yellow Pages to include ALL Special Needs and Medical Diagnosis. 


Families with ASD has partnered with other organizations, including Xavier University, Families Connected, and many Guest speakers to offer families free educational information on  IEP's, facial recognition, Social Skills, Advocacy, Special Needs Trust, etc... 


Families with ASD is always looking for more opportunities to help families connect with information and educational experiences.

 





















What is Autism Awareness?  Families with ASD believes that Autism Awareness should be a yearlong approach to helping educate others about Autism.  There are so many misconceptions about Autism.  Our goal is to help the community learn the facts about Autism and the many hidden talents our children and adults with autism may possess.
  How can you help spread Autism Awareness?
There are many ways to get involved and help spread awareness.  
Volunteer: Give the gift of time.
Families with ASD could always use more volunteers. Volunteers are needed for special events, such as our holiday parties, our "Out & About with Autism" group outings, and of course our annual Autism & ALL Special Needs Expo. We also need help with fundraising, planning, answering phones and returning call at the Autism Center.


Learn more about autism: Participate in educational workshops that teach more about autism. Research autism at the Families with ASD's Autism Library and on the Internet. 
Check out the local events going on in your community. Reach out to someone you know who’s life is effected by Autism and plan an activity together. See if anything is going on at your local school district, and just be involved in those activities. 

Families with ASD has proudly been working hard to promote awareness since 2005.
