When my daughter Johanna was two years old, she was diagnosed with ASD, and I felt very alone and scared about the future. I finally realized that my isolation was not doing me, Johanna, or anyone else any good at all, and I reached out to other parents in the same situation. This led me to my earliest encounters with the Autism Society of Broward, about 7 years ago. I gradually became more active in my volunteer work, and I found that the connections I was able to make with other parents in a similar situation was energizing and healing for both me and Johanna. I have never looked back, and the Society continues to be one of the main focuses of my life. I would highly recommend that any parent wishing to connect with other parents visit the website asabroward.org and join this wonderful group today. Through participating in the various programs the group has to offer, you will also soon discover that you are not alone on this challenging but rewarding journey!!
Great organization offering support and activities to build social skills.
ASB is truly a grassroots organization that not only is there to guide/help new parents in the journey of autism once child is diagnosed; as a matter of fact, ASB events -centralized- focus is to apply "inclusion" in all kind of social settings, allowing our kids to participate in fun-filled activities as well for parents to share their experiences in a friendly and familial environment.
Wonderful organization with many activities and events for families and people on the spectrum.
Autism Society Broward chapter is an excellent resource for the South Florida community! The board members are dedicated to meeting the needs of our families!
Es una sociedad donde me ayudo mucho a fortalecerme y a instruirme a como guiar y buscar las herramientas para ayudar a mis hijas. Todo esto me sirvió para que es estos momentos yo este preparada para ayudar a otras mamás

I have been a volunteer with the Autism Society of Broward for almost a year. I have also been a volunteer for other organizations, so I can say, if I compare others to ASB, that my experience has been remarkable. I had never experienced a sense of belonging, family and understanding before. ASB is the greatest organization to volunteer for!
The ASB goes out of it's way to find valuable resources and opportunities for the local autism community! It's a wonderful organization that truly cares and constantly gives back to the community.
An amazing journey with the Autism Society of Broward all along, for my son and for myself. Inspired to keep doing great things for our community, together with others that are going through similar situations! Feeling blessed to have this organization that can support so many families and give a sense of belonging!
