Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Our mission is to provide opportunities for inclusion, information, and support; to keep parents, family members of individuals with autism spectrum disorders and autistic individuals apprised of news and information, help them in their quest for services, and also in their quest for camaraderie with others in the autism community. We seek to directly help parents by providing opportunities for support, inclusion and information, free of charge.
At AutismLink, we feel you shouldn't have to pay for information and you shouldn't have to pay membership fees and dues to get to know other families in your area who have children with autism.
What do we do? It's simple -- we provide a place on the internet that gathers information from ALL organizations and put it in one place. We offer you a way to meet and talk to other parents in your area, and we offer a network of parents of children with autism who can help guide you. We don't compete with support organizations such as the local chapters of ASA, etc. We work with them to provide you with information.
In addition to our exhaustive website, in our home base of Pittsburgh, PA, we take children with autism and their families out to events on a monthly basis completely free of charge. From hockey to baseball, ice capades to picnics, parties, social skills groups, and more.... our main goal is to get children with autism and their families out into the community.
We also provide opportunities for parents, professionals and educators to learn more about autism by providing low cost or even free educational seminars and conferences. AutismLink brings in nationally renowned speakers regularly, and in conjunction with Duquesne Unviersity in Pittsburgh, holds a two-day autism conference every year at a very low cost.
