ASGA events and fundraisers bring the Greater Akron autism community together for education, networking, and fun. Events range from the Annual Autism Summit Conference to sensory-friendly days with community partners to our largest annual fundraiser, the Autism 5k Run & Walk. Events and fundraisers offer families, caregivers, educators, other professionals, and individuals with autism a safe, comfortable place to be a part of the community and support ASGA's programs and services. Money raised for ASGA stays local to support those affected by autism in Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit and Wayne counties.

Is mealtime around your table a battle of wills? Can you identify only a handful of foods your child will eat? Join ASGA and Dr. Cara Cuddy to discover some causes of food aversions/restrictions, identify conditions that may accompany a feeding disorder, learn problem-solving skills to address picky eating habits, and understand when to call a specialist.
ASGA will hold its fifth annual Double Down fundraiser with intimate dinners hosted by local Ambassadors, an online silent auction, and a variety of online “casino” games.
