SASI helped me find friends in a shared community. They made me feel at home and understood. They also accepted my son with open arms. The amount of activities scheduled each month was great for socialization and inclusion. Thank you for all you do!
Unlike other organizations this one is like finding a home, a family. One that always understands and has walked in your shoes. Then more than anything they connect you to real solutions real help sometimes even offered and run by them for free to VERY little cost. Anyone with a loved one on the spectrum needs to find their way home to SASI!
I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing quite a few of the amazing moments within the SASI organization. The dedication & commitment to the families is unbelievable and something to be admired. Priscilla & Stephanie have worked hard & I’m not sure they even realize how much they’ve seemed to impact the community, as they are more humble & giving than most I have encountered. The Blue Gala was one of the most heartfelt experiences I’ve been a part of- to see the faces on some of the receipients was an experience I’ll never forget. Cheers to the SASI organization & their continued success!
Incredible organization! So much help, information, understanding, sharing, giving... amazing!
There the Best!
They help Us find the answers when we are to overwhelmed with everything going on with our children with disabilities.
SASI is an unbelievable organization that helps children and families w/children on the Autism Spectrum. The selfless work that this group does is amazing.
SASI is the most wonderful autism group on Long Island. I have been a proud member of this wonderful group for almost 3 years now their advocacy and the workshops they provide are a blessing for parents who have children on the Spectrum. The two ladies who run this organization are the most wonderful people that I've had the pleasure of knowing.

A wonderful group that understands what we're going through!!!
SASI is an amazing organization that offers sonething I wish I found years ago. Truly remarkable professionals and individuals who have the support network in Suffolk County like non other!! Highly recommend for parents who are made to feel we are not alone!!! The support they give is amazing!!
My grandson is autistic. I have watched him improve a great deal because of the kindness and help from this group. My opinion is echoed by all who are part of this "family".
I found SASI almost 3 years ago because I had no one else who understood what having a child on the autism spectrum was like. SASI is unlike any other non profit because families come before profits. Each month SASI has a birthday club, a parent support meeting, sibling support groups, workshops with a range of speakers and topics, and events for young adults.
From the day I found out about SASI, the organization has been a huge help for me. I found SASI just a few months after my wife passed away, leaving me as a single dad to 2 my twin autistic girls who were 10 years old at that time.
They were able to show me that I was not alone. They provided support for me as a parent. Through social gatherings, monthly support meetings and their Facebook page.
For my girls, they have provided the needed social outings, life skills classes, resources for me to turn to, and birthday parties for them to attend.
The founders, Priscilla and Stephanie, have been nothing short of amazing. They make themselves available to everyone. They really care about their members. And they are so knowledgeable about the services available to our community.
I know that SASI has been a big part of our world. They have filled a void that school districts and local governments could not.
Love my SASI family! Want to spread the word about this great organization and what we have created. Hope that anyone who needs support will come and join us at www.sasiny.org. We provide services, supports and resources to aid children and families affected by autism across Long Island.
I was dragged into my first meeting kicking and screaming because one of my best friends wanted to go to this great support group that she had heard about. Once I was there I was hooked. They say when you have a child with special needs, you need to find your tribe. SASI Is just that. My daughter and I have made so many friendships since the day we started going to activities, birthday parties, family fun days, support groups… The list goes on and on. People who understand what it is that we are going through each day. There is never judgment there are never strange locks there are only open arms and shoulders to cry on. I am so very grateful for mine SASI “family”. I don’t know what I would ever do without them.
If you need one resource for questions about services, support, education and socialization with and for your ASD family member - this is the place.
So lucky to receive the specialized support, advice, and activities for our special needs family!
SASI is like another family. The executive board and special education advocacy staff are full of hardcore knowledge, that will motivate you into action. The members of SASI are just as free with sharing their autism knowledge and experiences. If you want to learn about the Autism Spectrum, SASI is the place to be.
SASI is support on every level for Autism. Advocacy, education, support groups, social groups, social events and online support!
Sasi is always willing to listen and give advice ❤️ They will take you under their wings. We all need support at some time this is an awesome group who understands what we are going through because they have been there too!! ❤️
They concentrate on what is truly needed in the community. With the best resources available. Every program is made accesible and attainable for the masses, offering Vocational program, life/social skills, birthday party club and much more. No one is judged, kids thrive and families arent judged.
As an autism mom with a child who has a lot to deal with, it's been a struggle for a very long time to find a support group where he felt welcome. SASI is amazing. Not only does my child enjoy the events SASI creates, but I don't feel isolated and mostly alone anymore. We've both found friends as well as resources - and that's made a tremendous difference in my child's life, and in mine!
