Our Mission: To connect individuals on the autism spectrum with resources, collaborate with experts, and foster inclusion through advocacy.
Our vision: A world where every person on the autism spectrum is supported and valued.
No two organizations are better equipped to lead the effort to end the isolation of autism than founding members Easterseals Central Illinois and OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois. We bring together more than two centuries of expert, compassionate care for children, people with disabilities, and the underserved. In 2022, the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria joined as a collaborator, bringing their world-class expertise to the team.
New members who share our passion and commitment are welcome to join us. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to get involved.
