The Autism Society is the nation’s leading grassroots autism organization. We work to increase public awareness about the day-to-day issues about people across the spectrum, advocate for appropriate services for individuals of every age, and provide the latest information regarding treatment, education, research, and advocacy.

We are committed and we are motivated. We have created an organization in Tempe, AZ that prepares adults with developmental disabilities for integrated, competitive employment opportunities through the provision of individualized support, training, and resources
