The mission of Autism York is to provide support to individuals on the autism spectrum, their parents, families and friends. Our group exists for the sole purpose of providing support in a safe and friendly environment. It is the intention of Autism York as a group to promote understanding and respect of all families and the choices they make regarding therapies and interventions. Through this group we will offer opportunities for families and individuals on the autism spectrum to learn, grow, and develop relationships that help guide one another through this journey.
Autism York sponsors events and programs at low or no cost to families and individuals living with Autism Spectrum Disorder in our community. Monthly meetings, educational seminars, social outings, a lending library, a resource directory, community awareness programs, family education sponsorships, and support for families and individuals are all made possible through tax deductible donations to Autism York.
Autism York is proud to have the support of many community groups and agencies. Without these generous organizations and individuals, we would not be able to continue to provide support to the local autism community. Thank you to each and every one of our contributors for helping us bring support, information, and awareness of autism spectrum disorders to York, and surrounding counties.

We are honored that they chose Autism York as the recipient of the proceeds from their fruitful efforts!
