Community Resources for People with Autism provides support, information, and practical help for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families living in Western Massachusetts.
Community Resources was founded in 1989 by parents of children with autism. Their goal was to help families, schools, professionals, agencies and communities understand autism, promote the well-being of individuals with autism, and foster their inclusion in the community. They are a Division of the Association For Community Living.
Our goal is still to help families build on their strengths, work together to create a positive vision for the future, and help their children learn, grow and be welcomed, fully included members of their communities. Community Resources continues to be directed by parents and other family members in partnership with autism professionals and other concerned citizens.
