STRENGTHEN OUR COMMUNITY

Families living with autism spectrum disorder need support. Resources and services are available at Marcus Autism Center and through community partnerships. Parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, and other professionals get help with assessment techniques, treatment analyses, implementing interventions, respite and emotional support. These programs strategically meet a child’s needs and a family’s goals.

INFANT TODDLER COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Creating community support systems

Recognizing the early symptoms of autism spectrum disorder is crucial for young children. Early intervention after an ASD diagnosis changes the course of a child’s life. The Infant Toddler Community Outreach program builds the capacity of community systems to better screen, detect and provide services and supports to families and infants and toddlers at risk for autism. Our goal is to transform educational and health outcomes for our most vulnerable children.

CAMPS FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES

Kids can be kids, and families grow closer

Families, caregivers, siblings, and children with autism spectrum disorder need to spend time with other children and families just like their own. At specially-designed camps, everyone participates in fun and social activities. Campers try new activities, and families get to enjoy time together. Funding from donors will enable more children and families to fulfill their dreams of attending camp and creating lifelong memories.
