Since 1969, the Autism Society affiliate in South Central Wisconsin has worked to address areas of need, while providing and expanding support for the autism community in ten Southern Wisconsin counties.
We are one of 107 national affiliates and our local organization has a goal to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by autism spectrum disorder. Every dollar we raise stays in the Southern Wisconsin region to directly help those who live and work in our surrounding communities.
We are a largely volunteer run organization that focuses on educational outreach, public policy advocacy, support groups for all family members and building awareness through numerous marketing and social events. We recognize that each person has special attributes with ways to contribute, and that’s why we are committed to societal inclusion in hope of earning respect and tolerance for all individuals on the spectrum from diagnosis through the life span.
