The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin celebrates differences as we work to build an inclusive society where individuals with autism live fully through connection and acceptance.

Offering a Personal Connection

We understand what you are going through. We are local and want to help. We support people with autism spectrum disorders, their families, professionals and others in the community by sharing information, supporting research, providing networking opportunities and promoting awareness through education and training.

Thank You for Supporting Our Annual Campaign!

Thank you for supporting the autism community with your generous donations. Because of your past support, we have weathered the storms of 2020 and have continued to offer services to over 8,500 individuals in Southeastern Wisconsin and offer connections, help and hope when they need it. Your support anchors our goal to make Southeastern Wisconsin a better place for all affected by autism. Help us invest in innovative programs, projects, and provide education initiatives to families and the community. We know many people are hurting this year, and if that is your situation, please know that we are still here for you and other families. We exist to serve you and the autism community that we both love. Please give generously this year if you can. A contribution is your opportunity to demonstrate what is important to you and protect our autism community for the future.

In Person Events & Programs Postponed in Response to COVID-19
At the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin, the health and well-being of those we serve is of the utmost importance, guiding the choices we make as an organization each day. For that reason, we have been keeping a watchful eye on the developing situation pertaining to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). After careful consideration, for the safety and protection of our members, attendees, sponsors and staff, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person programming through the end of 2020.


We hope you will join us at that time and will consider supporting us as we navigate this unprecedented landscape.

While we await a return to normalcy, online services via our Facebook Support Group pages will remain in place as we work to improve the lives of all those affected by autism. We appreciate your patience and understanding. We will continue to be transparent throughout this process.

 

CAI Autism2Work

The CAI’s Autism2Work program partners with autism-support associations, employment organizations, and colleges and universities to recruit, select and train individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. The program reinforces the idea that employing individuals with ASD is a way to attract innovative thinkers with attention to detail and pattern recognition skills. CAI helps them become a part of a team locally that values this type of hard work, preparing them for a career in IT or Business Operations. Please check out the CAI website at www.cai.io/a2w for more information on the Autism2Work program or contact them via email at autism2work@cai.io or call 610-530-5060.

17jun4:00 pm5:30 pmTRAILS - SESSION FIVE: The Role of Siblings in Future PlanningWhat happens when parents are no longer around? Without adequate future plans, adults with disabilities can face disruptive transitions, endure emergency placements in inappropriate settings, and suffer through inadequate financial and legal safeguards, all of which place a strain on siblings and other family members. Yet most adults who have siblings with disabilities feel woefully unprepared financially and emotionally. You can learn the components of a plan with Harriet Redman. Begin today to plan for the future– give your family the gift of peace of mind. Do not put it off, start now. This session is for both parents and adult siblings of people with disabilities.
