Autism is a maze of confusion that often includes a whirlwind of evaluations, appointments, therapists, doctor visits, and educational choices. Parents are left feeling scared, overwhelmed, frustrated, and alone. The Arizona Autism Coalition is here to help. Our organization is comprised of the best autism professionals in the state of Arizona, and we collaborate with national groups including Autism Speaks, Autism Votes, and Autism Society of America.
Individuals and families affected by disability matter. Your voice matters and the power of your vote can enhance or maintain the quality and quantity of services. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 64 Arizona children are now diagnosed with autism. Legislators need to hear from their constituents so that the decisions they are making are the right ones for your family. The Arizona Autism Coalition is here to help you find your voice.
