Since 2003, the National Autism Association has created and implemented direct-assistance programs for the growing number of families affected by autism. Along with these services, NAA provides autism research funding, ongoing advocacy, support and education.
Because we are a parent-led non-profit organization, our objectives and resources center on:
Strengthening autism families by providing support in areas of greatest need, such as safety, therapy and medical services
Providing our members and community with the latest information pertaining to research, education, legislation, safety, and therapy and treatment trends
Funding impactful research studies aimed at real progress for our children
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
