We are here to support you! Right NOW! When you need it most!
#AutismStrong  #TogetherOhio

April is National Autism Awareness Month, when we work together to shine a light on individuals and families living with autism. That light is more important than ever, as COVID-19 has placed unique and unprecedented challenges on individuals and families far beyond what is typically being experienced in our state and country.
With that said, it is a time to come together – virtually – to SHARE our story, PARTICIPATE by taking photos showing our life and love of a person with autism, and to demonstrate SUPPORT by engaging with us and others in our virtual programs.


  • Your story with us! How your family is making the best of COVID-19!
  • Share your photos with us as you participate in National Autism Awareness Month!

With the current Stay Home order by Gov. DeWine, many people are ordering from Amazon.  You can help ASGA at the same time by logging in to Amazon Smile and choosing Autism Society Greater Akron as your charity. It’s the same products, but ASGA receives a percentage back for your order.  Please consider supporting ASGA!
