Welcome to the East Central Iowa Autism Society.
Currently the rate of autism is 1 in 68. We hear the rates are going up each year. We hear that services are hard to secure, that dollars for research and funding are too short. We spend our days wondering about our children's health, education and future. Each day we deal with the unanswered questions, the meltdowns, the lack of sleep, and the worry. To most Americans, 1 in 68 is a number. To the families of a child with autism, our 1 in 68 has a face and a name.
To advocate for individuals and families living with autism spectrum disorder through support, resources, and education.
Inspiring all individuals with autism, by giving them the resources to thrive in the world we live in today.
