The Autism Response Team (ART) is an information and referral support for the autism community. Our team members are Certified Resource Specialists through Inform USA and are specially trained to provide personalized information and resources to autistic individuals, families, service providers, and the community.

Who can contact us?

We are happy to provide support to autistic individuals, parents, grandparents, friends, teachers, social workers, and everyone in between.

Even if you have no connection to autism but have a question, please feel free to reach out. We assist people of all ages, including children, teens, and adults with autism. 

What does ART provide?

The Autism Response Team can answer your questions, connect you with tools and resources, and help you find autism services and supports in your community.

We are not a direct service provider, so we don’t make appointments or direct referrals. However, our team will provide you with support, encouragement, and assistance with locating autism service providers in your community.

The Autism Response Team can help you learn more about:

  • Where to get a diagnosis
  • Schools and special education
  • Advocacy and support
  • Adult services – including post-secondary programs and employment
  • Inclusion and community activities
  • And much more
