Autism Society of Alabama

Birmingham, Alabama

Network groups in more than 30 towns and cities across the state provide unmatched levels of support.

For over two decades, the Autism Society of Alabama has provided programs, education and advocacy for individuals affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Today, we have the most comprehensive resource list for families in Alabama. Our parent-led network groups are available for support, questions, friendship and more. We are dedicated to providing support at all stages of life for people with ASD.

We recently obtained a grant that allows us to provide an autism-friendly initiative, which encourages businesses to learn more about autism and make their environment more sensory inclusive and welcoming to individuals with autism.

In addition, our network groups are in more than 30 towns and cities across the state, providing a level of support that’s unmatched.

The Mission

Our mission is to improve services for children and adults affected by ASD, as well as their families, through education and advocacy. Our programs include: first responder training, parent training, sibling support, camps, information and community resources, and family grants.

What Would You Do with $5,000 and a Day of Service?

The $5,000 would allow ASA to provide 100 Care Binders to newly diagnosed families, and 10 family grants to use for respite, Applied Behavior Analysis therapy or swim lessons.
