Why We Exist

ASM exists because persons with autism spectrum disorder have unique capacities and gifts and we are fortunate to have them in our lives. We believe persons with autism spectrum disorders contribute in unique ways to their families and communities. ASM believes that the best advocacy occurs with education and respect and the presumption of competence of all persons.

What We Do
