About Us

Autism RibbonAutism Society of Broward County

The Autism Society of Broward is a volunteer organization of autism parents and professionals. Though not a service provider, per se, we assist families with support groups as well as social, recreational and educational opportunities. All of the funds we raise go right into our community-based programs.

History

We are an affiliate of the Autism Society of America. The Autism Society of Broward County has had many accomplishments in the areas of advocacy, information and referral, and parent support. ASB has been the impetus to initiate many educational programs for autistic students in Broward County. We have been involved in the advisory process of initiating programs on the preschool and elementary level such as the Program for Autistic Secondary Students (PASS).
