Lifespan Supports

Living with autism is a journey, a process that may includes many twists and turns.  Our mission is to support individuals with autism and their families as they navigate this course.

Families may need to access supports and services to help their family member with autism for the purpose of helping the individual learn new skills as well as to support the family and individual to do the things they want to do, with the people they want, and in the places they want.  For some families this may mean being able to go out to eat, going on vacation, going to church, or going to family gatherings.  Each family is different, you have to decide what this means for your family.

We encourage individuals and families to use the information provided in the way that works best for them. If you see something missing, let us know so we can consider how to incorporate new information to provide for families and professionals.
