Autism Community

Autism Community

For decades, we’ve invited and encouraged individuals with autism to become more involved in "the community", which usually meant the neurotypical community. As Anderson helps communities become more Autism Supportive, and with diagnostic rates in the United States at 1 in 44 and rising, Anderson recognizes that today, everyone is part of the "autism community". We are neighbors, friends, family members, coworkers, professionals, and business owners.
