The Autism Society of Greater Akron is pleased to offer workshops throughout the year on subjects that are most pressing to individuals with autism and their families.  Workshops are intended for caregivers of children with autism or other disabilities; professionals may attend some workshops with prior approval and childcare is available for most dates at a nominal fee to help cover the costs we incur.

We have never turned anyone away who cannot afford to pay.  For that reason, we have instituted a scholarship program to ensure the workshops and childcare are available to everyone.  For more information about the scholarship, please e-mail us HERE.
