We are working diligently to promote Autism and Developmental Disorder Awareness. We provide needed resources to residents throughout the community and the Chicagoland area.

With government funding being cut regularly, we rely on the goodness of people to support our efforts in enhancing the lives of those impacted by Autism and Developmental Disorders.
