Together, We Can Make Change Happen

About Us


Autism Society Louisiana State Chapter, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that aims to help individuals with autism enjoy purposeful lives and bright futures. We are an affiliate of the National Autism Society, the oldest grassroots organization in the country.


We provide referrals and support for individuals with autism who reside in Louisiana. In addition, we hold fundraising events to maintain our outreach programs and community development plans. However, we don’t stop there. We continue to blaze the trail toward inclusive legislation and a culture that accepts and respects people with autism.

Our Mission

Improving the lives of all affected by autism

Our Vision

The Autism Society envisions a world in which individuals and families living with autism are able to maximize their quality of life, are treated with the highest level of dignity, and live in a society in which their talents and skills are appreciated and valued

Autism Society Mission Areas

The development of five “core competencies” as a means to implement the Autism Society’s Mission and Vision is proposed in the Autism Society’s new strategic plan. Those areas include:

Advocacy

The Autism Society’s public policy and advocacy efforts have continually improved the lives of those affected by autism. At the national level, the Autism Society supports the needs of the millions of individuals impacted by autism in America and their family members. At the state level, the Autism Society helps state Autism Societies advancing advocacy efforts at the state level to advance the wellbeing of individuals and families impacted by autism. Each year, volunteers and staff from around the nation come to Washington, DC to meet with their national elected officials and to promote a responsive and accountable national legislative agenda to advance the quality of life of all diagnosed with autism.

Education

The Autism Society provides easy-to-understand, practical information related to the autism spectrum for a broad audience on a wide range of educational topics to empower people to more effectively advocate and obtain supports. We work to educate individuals with autism, their loved ones, professionals from multiple disciplines, and the public at large about autism and issues within the autism community in order to foster acceptance and appreciation of individuals on the autism spectrum as the valued members of our community that they are.

Information & Referral

Many parents say that their first call after receiving a diagnosis of autism is to the Autism Society, however it doesn’t end with that first call. We are here through all phases of one’s lifespan, empowering those affected by autism through a one-on-one connection with our staff of trained Information and Referral specialists.

Support

Autism Society’s affiliates are your best source of information and support, and where the person in need is helped directly. Through support groups, help with understanding the services in the community or state, local and state advocacy, help to an individual and his/her family to navigate often complex and confusing service systems, and training to local and statewide organizations on being autism friendly and responsive, the local or state Autism Society affiliates thrive each and every day.

Community

The Autism Society’s vision is to increase the quality of life of everyone living with ASD by building autism friendly, inclusive communities. The Autism Society believes that individuals with autism deserve to live, work, play, socialize, learn and worship in the setting and manner of their own choosing.
