We can do this together!


LATEST NEWS


ASGA’s mission is more critical than ever as we serve one of the most vulnerable populations in our community – individuals with autism and their families – at a time when we cannot physically come together. Like all Ohio families, this is tough. For families with a child with autism, who often have communication challenges, thrive on routine, and depend on the village of teachers, therapists, and other support professionals – it can be a disaster! 

The Autism Society of Greater Akron’s Board of Directors and staff have worked hard to re-prioritize our budget and programs to respond to the many requests we have received for help and support that meet people’s needs today. Our goals have not changed, we are just doing them a little differently.

We have always supported each other, and we will now, too!  We are still only a phone call away.  

We can do this together!
