Autism Supported Environment Training

Our Autism Supportive Environment  program (ASE) is a community partnership designed to assist businesses in understanding, serving and supporting individuals with ASD and their families.  Many times families of individuals with ASD find themselves isolated from their communities and unable to participate in activities we take for granted such as dining out, running errands, enjoying community events or recreation activities.  By becoming an Autism Supportive Environment, your business is recognized as a bridge of acceptance and support, a beacon of hope and a true community partner. To see a list of the businesses that have participated in this training select this link.
