Autism Support Groups 

We strive to maintain an extensive list of persons, agencies, and organizations who help support individuals, families, and professionals who work or live with autism spectrum disorder.

 

There are several government agencies and nonprofits that provide information on autism support groups. Some of these organizations host support groups, and some can connect you to the right type of group for your needs. We do not guarantee the quality of the services provided by any individual or organization listed below. Click your state for quick access.

Government Organizations

Here are a few government organizations you can contact to help you find information on autism support, which includes support groups: 

  • Autism spectrum disorder information from the CDC: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) keeps track of conditions that impact Americans, from diabetes and substance abuse to mental illness and developmental conditions like autism. Their information on autism provides a solid overview of this development disorder, so you can read more about your child’s condition. 

    They also provide a page, Links to Other Websites, with extensive information on groups offering support, funding, and research information. The page includes listings of mutual support groups, both in person and online.  

 

  • Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services Blog: This page provides a lot of information, personal stories and interviews, and approaches to support for parents and guardians of children with autism. Start here to understand that you are not alone. It can be a launching point for finding support through your child’s daycare or school.

 

  • Behavioral Health Services Locator:The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has an online search tool to help you find behavioral treatment for many conditions, including support groups for parents of children with autism.

 

Nonprofits & Community Organizations

Nonprofits and community organizations provide a lot of support for children and adults with autism, along with their families. These are some of the leading nonprofit groups offering support for families of autistic individuals: 

  • Autism Speaks: This organization provides a range of information and services to help people with autism and their families, including an online support group. While many people prefer to meet in person, online support groups offer a level of anonymity, convenience, and diversity that an in-person meeting may not provide. You might be able to find more help for your specific situation or connect with families going through similar issues all over the world. 

 

  • Center for Parent Information and Resources: This organization offers trainings throughout all 50 states, so parents of young children with specific disabilities, including autism, can get the help and support they need to provide a safe and supportive environment for their children. These trainings can help you meet likeminded people going through a similar experience as well.
