Autism Social Connection

Our Mission
Autism Social Connection seeks to maximize the potential of each child and adult with autism to learn, develop, function independently and participate in the full range of social, cultural and quality of life experiences.

Our Vision
Autism Social Connection is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with autism by providing first-rate services and supports. Autism Social Connection strives to create an inclusive, caring community where each individual is fully appreciated and accepted as a unique and contributing member of society.
