When Robert was diagnosed on this 3rd birthday with Autism, we were lost and didn't know where to turn to for support. That was until we were introduced to AutismUp. As soon as we joined the AutismUp community, we were part of an organization filled with acceptance, support, understanding, & guidance. Any questions I asked, they were answered within minutes with suggestions, experiences and sometimes simply just supportive messages.
We continue to support and be part of AutismUp because they support the families and the individuals with Autism from toddler to teens to adults. They are dedicated to educating our fellow community members on how individuals with Autism can enhance our community. AutismUp does training with our police force on communication with Autistic individuals, provides educational sessions for professional leaders on hiring Autistic adults and strives to create a loving community for them to flourish.
We believe that with AutismUp's work, our son and others like him have a far better future.
