Autism Support Home

ABOARD’s Autism Connection of PA provides autism support across the state of Pennsylvania. We offer autism support to parents, including autism support groups, autism resources, and autism conferences and events. We also provide information on the signs and symptoms of autism, getting an autism diagnosis, and applying for medical assistance and health insurance. Finally, we help people with autism by providing information on autism treatments, links to autism research studies, and support groups for people on the spectrum.

Do you have a child newly diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder? Please contact us. We will help you receive the services you need.
