Find an Autism Support Group Near You #WorldAutismAwarenessDay

Adafruit Autism Awareness blog

If you’re looking for possible support groups in your area, we’ve found meetup.com to be very helpful. All you have to do is enter your city and Autism (or ASD) and search! Here’s a link to Autism meet ups we found within 5 miles of NYC.

We also found a NYC based organization, YAI, that provides an Autism Support Series for caregivers and parents. You can get more info here

National Autism Association also has a thorough list of programs. From the National Autism Association:

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
  • Raising awareness about the autism epidemic
