Description

Grupo de Autismo Angeles was founded in 1998 by Jose Luis and Gloria Hernandez. With the help of fellow parents in the same situation as them, they formed the first Spanish-speaking support group, Grupo de Autismo Angeles and today have helped over 500 families. Grupo Angeles primary goals are to increase the awareness and availability of resources, as well as, provide support and educational program for Spanish-speaking families who have children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum disorder.
