The experience of Autism is not one thing. It is many things. It’s dreams, talents, relationships, victories, hurdles, and everything in between. The connection between those experiences is you™

Community Building

At the core of ASN’s mission is community. Our goal is to build communities of connection, comfort, inclusion, mutual respect, and support. Our support groups are coordinated by local volunteers with the support and guidance of ASN. We currently have support networks in Scottsbluff, North Platte, Lincoln & Omaha that provide local support events and resources. We also collaborate with other organizations and agencies to improve our communities and provide joint events.

Will you join us and be a part of creating a broader ASN Autism Community in Nebraska?

Information & Referral

We hear you! At the Autism Society of Nebraska, we create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources available to them. Whether you are new to the diagnosis or are facing new challenges throughout the lifespan, contact us for support. Many of us at ASN are parents, professionals, and self-advocates like you. ASN strives to connect Nebraskans to the information, news, referrals, and resources available to them.
