When you become a sustaining Member of the Autism Society Greater Akron (ASGA), you are supporting individuals living with autism in our community. ASGA is not a direct service provider with earned revenue streams, rather it is an organization that maintains its ability to ADVOCATE for improved laws, regulations and services that support individuals with autism and their families without conflicts of interest.

ASGA has been helping individuals and families impacted by autism for 25 years! We were founded in 1992 when a volunteer-network became an affiliate to locally support and advocate for improved programs and services.

Today, ASGA is the resource for individuals and families in our community that includes:

  • “Info Line” of autism: Community members receive FREE support and connections to community services and providers.  Over 500 calls and emails fielded annually.
  • Coffee, Tea, and Autism: Peer-facilitated support groups located in all five of counties.
  • Community inclusion: Creating acceptance and understanding of “neurodiversities” with Autism 101 classes, “Inclusion” opportunities, such as Inclusion Day at the Soap Box Derby, and public educational and awareness opportunities.
  • Advocacy: No one does it better than the unified network of the Autism Society of America.  And the Greater Akron’s voice is part of it because we have an affiliate located here.
  • Education: Monthly workshops educate caregivers and individuals with autism about topics from potty-training to learning about adult service providers.  Our conference supports sharing of best practices and advocates for local system changes.

Our nationwide network focuses on Advocacy, Lifetime Planning, and Local Care.  Membership is not required, but your membership helps us keep the engine going.

ASGA is one of more than 100 affiliates nationwide that is part of the Autism Society of America and serves Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit and Wayne counties.  Join other families, friends, and professionals who support our cause by becoming a member today!
