Autism Society of Ohio invites you to get involved in our Big Give for Autism (#AutismBigGive) on September 17.This is a day for you to provide real help for people and families living with autism.  Why should you get involved?  Consider these facts:

  • Every day 126 people are diagnosed with autism; that’s one person every 11 minutes.

  • Currently, there are an estimated 3.5 million people in the United States living with autism spectrum disorder.

  • People with autism and their families must navigate difficult systems, and many adults on the autism spectrum are denied basic civil rights, such as access to transportation, housing and jobs appropriate to their knowledge and skills.

For fifty years, the Autism Society has supported individuals with autism, their families, caregivers and friends as we advocate for better services and provide the latest information regarding treatment, education, research and advocacy. 

By supporting the Autism Society of Ohio, you join with thousands across the country to provide much-needed support for individuals with autism and their families. 

Sign up today to receive your Big Give for Autism (#AutismBigGive)(link to make the blue underlined words a hot link: https://autismbiggive.org/#sign-up) reminder email and then spread the word about the Autism Society’s giving day.  Everyone knows someone impacted by autism.  Let’s work together to enhance their lives, provide support and give dignity to those who for years have been socially isolated and overlooked.

Celebrate the Autism Society’s 50th Anniversary by getting involved in the Big Give for Autism (#AutismBigGive) on September 17.

Ohio Autism Taskforce Recommendations being Updated

The Ohio Autism Taskforce issued their original report in 2005 with 43 recommendations to improve supports and services for individuals with autism in Ohio (click HERE to see the original report). The OCALI Advisory Board is currently working to update and "re-vision" those recommendations and create new ones moving forward. You now have the opportunity to provide input and feedback on the new recommendations - both in person and/or online. There will be five forums around the state at locations in Athens, Cincinnati, Akron, Bowling Green and Columbus. Can't attend? Provide input online. For complete details on how to provide input online, visit http://www.ocali.org/project/ohio_autism_recommendations Autism Society of Ohio Board Member Barb Yavorcik is Chair of the OCALI Advisory Board.
