Be part of a community of parents, professionals and people "who get it."

Members of AutismUp have access to the very best autism programs, training, services and events in the area. We offer an online message board for parents and guardians, so members can receive and share support 24/7 - because autism lasts a lifetime, and sometimes it doesn't sleep. Join our community of 3,300 member families and find your voice.

Why join AutismUp?

At AutismUp, we are guided by the ever present reality that what we want for our children with autism, may not exist, yet.

"Be the change you wish to see in this world." - Mahatma Gandhi

We have been listening to and learning from families since we started in 2004. We continually ask families what they want for their children with autism. The responses guide the development of our programs, services and creation of our multi sensory learning environment.

I want my child with autism to have friends.
I want to meet others who get it.
I want my child to be healthy.
I want a place for my child to learn the basics to play sports.
I want a safe and supportive environment.
I want a break.
I want to prepare my child for future employment.
I want my child to learn how to be more independent.
I want my child to learn to take turns.
