The mission of the Autism Society of Alabama is to improve the quality of life of persons with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families through education, advocacy, and support. The Autism Society of Alabama (ASA) has been a volunteer organization directed by its Board of Directors for over 10 years. Between March 1997 and July 1997, members of ASA participated in a series of four "strategic planning" meetings. These meetings were held throughout the State of Alabama. Under the direction of a consultant, the strategic planning process helped the membership of the ASA to clarify its vision, mission, values and program goals. Members who participated in this planning process now have a sense of hope for the future and a strong commitment to work together to see their Mission and Vision become a reality. Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families are the constituency served by ASA. For FY 98/99 funds were secured to allow the ASA to hire an Executive Director and to begin implementation of PROJECT ACTION and other initiatives proposed in the strategic plan. ASA continues to revistit he strategic plan and make changes to best serve the needs of persons with autism spectrum disorders and their families.

Autism One is a nonprofit organization 501(3)(c) started by a small group of parents of children with autism to address three areas: education, advocacy, and fundraising.

Autism One is a conference which provides education and information covering a variety of topics and concerns. The best treatment programs combine a number of components, ranging from the biomedical to the behavioral. In addition to treating autism itself we provide information and education for dealing with school systems, insurance companies, state,local, and the Federal Government, as well as legal issues.
TUNE IN NOW! A Worldwide, Web-Based Radio Station for the Care, Treatment, and Recovery of Children with Autism Helping children with autism means providing parents, families, and professionals with the best information, practices, and education in the timeliest manner in the most useful format. Printed words are fine for a number of things: text works well when referencing materials, when reviewing known topics. Text is not the vehicle to reach and teach parents struggling with new and at times frightening issues and concepts. The answer is the spoken word. A voice conveys information, nuances, purpose and emphasis printed words cannot begin to capture. A voice is active; resonating with thought and emotion, turning ideas into understandable practice.
