AS-GNO is committed to serving those in the Greater New Orleans Area who are affected by autism. The dedicated board is made up of volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to maintain a support line to families in the community, manage a local resource list, provide training and educational opportunties, and support recreational opportunties for individuals who struggle with autism.
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.
