Does the chapter offer direct services?
The chapter is not allowed to provide direct services to members. We are primarily a resource and information center for those with autism and their parents. We do however provide social events for families with a member affected by autism. These include holiday parties, private movie screenings, a Family Enrichment Camp, bowling outings, skating outings, picnics and other events.
