Explore our resources and browse our Facebook page for additional information and community events! Check out our Calendar to discover what we have planned for you.
AZ ASSIST is a community of families of teens and young adults on the autism spectrum where self-advocacy and independence are promoted and encouraged. We have a great group of autistic adults who mentor our youth and a variety of professionals who generously share their time and expertise. Monthly meetings to explore transition issues, as well as social events in the community, provide opportunities for parents and youth to establish a community of support. Join us as we learn about transition, share our experiences, celebrate our successes and support each other on the journey to independence.
Thank you, Mobivity, for donating a text messaging plan to AZ ASSIST so that we can more effectively communicate with our teens and young adults. To join our Text Club, send AZASSIST to 411247.
