Who We Are

The mission of the Nebraska Affiliate of the Autism Society of America is to support and advocate for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and their families.

 

                         Core Services of the Autism Society of Nebraska

Community

The Autism Society of Nebraska’s local support networks are the capstone of our organization.  We provide supportive events, resources, and training across the lifespan.  In addition, the Autism Society of Nebraska participates in local and statewide collaborative efforts with other agencies.  

Information & Referral 

The Autism Society of Nebraska provides information and referral through a website, 800 number, social media, and local support networks. 

Education

The Autism Society of Nebraska works to educate individuals on the autism spectrum, their loved ones, professionals, and the public about autism to foster awareness, acceptance, and autonomy.  At the state level, the Autism Society of Nebraska collaborates with the NE ASD Network at the state autism conference each year.   Our organization is collaborating to produce and promote safety training for first responders and individuals on the autism spectrum. 

Legislative Advocacy

The Autism Society of Nebraska advocacy efforts have improved the lives of those on the autism spectrum and their families.  At the national level, the Autism Society of Nebraska meets with our elected officials to promote a legislative agenda to advance the quality of life of all on the autism spectrum and their family members by participating at Autism Society’s Day on the Hill in Washington, DC.  At the state level, the Autism Society of Nebraska actively participates in state legislative efforts.

 

We hope you consider helping us make a difference in the lives of individuals with autism here in Nebraska.
