Autism Services Association, Inc.

 
Autism Services Association (ASA) is a private non-profit human service agency which provides community employment services, supported employment, Day Habilitation Program, and other clinical supports to young adults and adults with autism and other challenging developmental disabilities. ASA was established in 1963 by a group of concerned parents, citizens, and community leaders to serve the needs of individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities in Central and Eastern Massachusetts.
Adults with autism and their families face an unsettling frustrating two fold obstacle: 1) They are in desperate need of a wide range of vocational, adult life and community services, and 2) unfortunately, the options that they are offered typically do not meet their individualized needs. Thus they sometimes find themselves in conflict with the system in order to receive the services they need. In addition, when adults with autism are successful in obtaining services, often staff are not experienced in working with persons with autism. In this instance, a vendor or professional staff may likely state that although they are not knowledgeable and have not worked with persons with autism, they are willing to try and learn.

Admission criteria are:

1) age 16 or older
2) a diagnosis of autism and/or other developmental disability
3) in need of services integrated into the community.
