Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Autism Project is a unique collaboration of parents, professionals and community members who provide quality support, training, and programming that is accessible to all children and adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, their families and those who work with them.
The Autism Project provides multiple tiers of training for education professionals, family members, and the community, offers social skill-building groups and a summer camp for children and teens with an ASD, hosts a National Speaker Conference, offers daily support for family members across Rhode Island to help them navigate our state’s system of care and access resources, consults to Rhode Island’s public schools, develops curriculums for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and collaborates with other organizations to improve the quality of care and life for people with an ASD and to raise awareness of the prevalence of ASDs in our state and local communities.
Access to quality and appropriate therapies, academic models, and social activities remains limited for children, teens, and young adults with an ASD, and access to supports, resources, and accurate information for the parents and families of these children, teens, and young adults is likewise limited. This need is addressed by TAP through our social group programming, which provides important social skill-building in a safe space for youth of all ages with an ASD, through our training programs for parents, families, and educators, and other professionals, through our parent-to-parent support groups and consultations, and through our afterschool programs, summer camp, and specialized curricula for school-aged children with an ASD.
