Mission: The Autism Society of Ohio also acts as an information clearing house for persons with autism and ASD, their families, and the professionals who serve them in Ohio and neighboring states. An affiliate of the Autism Society of America, the ASO makes information and ideas accessible to interested families and professionals using the following tools: * The ASO underwrites the ASO Info Line at 330-376-0211 (phone) and 330-376-1226 (fax). * Bi-annually, the ASO hosts a two-day conference on autism (typically in a central Ohio city) that includes presentations and workshops relating to education, recreation, new or existing therapies, social and family issues, and medical updates. * The ASO links families into the network of local Autism Society chapters throughout the state.With the aid of many volunteers, the ASO hosts this website to centralize information relating to autism and ASD for persons and families living within Ohio and neighboring states.

As the parent of a autistic on the spectrum, I found the Autism Society of Ohio to be very unhelpful with helping to get information and referral services they talked about that could help our situation. Many of the services were ultimately dead ends and wastes of time, but nothing that could provide realistic means of getting support or services desperately needed. Emails go unanswered and phone calls unreturned, very disappointing. The phone support line often gave very different answers depending on who you talked to. I would not donate to this charity knowing what I know now.
