About Autism Society of Larimer County

The Autism of Larimer County is a local chapter of the Autism Society of America. The Autism Society of America (www.autism-society.org) was founded in 1965 by Bernard Rimland, Ph.D. His book, Infantile Autism: The Syndrome and Its Implications for a Neural Theory of Behaviour, was written in late 1964 and was one of the first of its kind. In 1968, Ruth Sullivan, Ph.D. became the organization's first elected president. Over the last 40 years, the Society has grown from a handful of parents, into the leading source of information, research, and reference on autism. ASA is the oldest and largest grassroots organization within the autism community. Today, more than 120,000 members and supporters are connected through a working network of nearly 200 chapters nationwide. ASA membership continues to grow as more and more parents and professionals unite to form a collective voice representing the autism community.
 

Who we are

The ASLC is a volunteer group of dedicated well-informed parents and professionals working together to increase public awareness about autism and the day-to-day issues faced by individuals with autism, their families and the professionals with whom they interact. It is the ASLC’s intent to provide current, accurate information on diagnosis, treatment, research, legislative updates, resources, and programs to assist families and professionals as they design intervention strategies for individuals with autism.
 

How we started

The Autism Society of Larimer County was founded in 2006 by a group of educated and enthusiastic parents. ALSC’s primary intent was to partner with local professionals to bring families information as well as support educators and service providers with educational opportunities and community connections while building autism awareness and tolerance. Throughout the years, the ASLC has benefited from the talent, wisdom and heart of a myriad of volunteers.
 

Where we hope to go

It is our hope to continue to grow and impact our community by expanding our services into Weld County, providing more social opportunities through integrated playgroups, and supporting adults with autism and sponsoring an annual autism conference in Northern Colorado. In order to reach this long term goal, the ASLC needs volunteers to serve on the board, committees and event planning.
 

Our Mission

The Mission of the Autism Society of Larimer County is to serve as a resource for individuals and families affected by autism spectrum disorder by providing information, advocacy, public awareness activities and promoting the development of services and resources throughout Larimer County.
