Autism spectrum disorder is the fastest, growing developmental disability with 1 in 88 children diagnosed in the Unites States. There is no known cause, cure, or prognosis for people with ASD. According to the national organization, Autism Speaks, "more children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined".

Annual Open House Meeting

We hold an Open House meeting in the fall at an alternative location from our regular meetings in Berlin. The public is welcome to join us and learn about what we do and share information with us. Members decide on the location of the event in the fall. Please come!
