My son, who was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome as an adult, was having a difficult time finding services that were helpful to him. The Autism Society has done a great deal to help him with his needs. They are a wonderful and supportive group.

When my husband and I were told our child had autism, The Autism Society of America-Greater New Orleans Chapter were the only place where we received information and support. That was over twenty years ago, today the organization is still providing a lot of information through personal phone calls, workshops, newsletters ,and more. Information on social, educational, and personal issues that affect people with autism, their families, and those who assist them professionally are always given.The Mini Grants that are given to families and professionals are also very helpful. The organization is made up of very dedicated and caring people.
