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. With diagnostic rates in the United States at 1 in 44, Anderson recognizes that today, everyone is part of the “autism community” and Anderson is helping communities become more Autism Supportive. We are neighbors, friends, family members, coworkers, professionals, and business owners. We are all the autism community. The autism community includes us.

Autism Supportive EnvironmentSM
We are proud to list all of the forward-thinking and community-minded businesses that have chosen to become and Autism Supportive EnvironmentSM by working with Anderson Center Consulting. Find the businesses you need here, knowing that they understand and appreciate your loved one on the autism spectrum.

Autism Supportive Community
With funding awarded from the Thomas Thompson Trust, we have collaborated with the Village of Rhinebeck to support their effort to establish the Village of Rhinebeck as an Autism Supportive Community. This will be the first Autism Supportive Community in our region. Business and organizations in the Village of Rhinebeck have committed to do “#1Thing” as part of the community’s efforts to be designated as an Autism Supportive Community. Those who signed on to do “#1Thing” in Rhinebeck have made at least one adjustment to their facilities or to the way they operate to accommodate people with special needs. Businesses are also encouraged to complete the Autism Supportive EnvironmentSM training program. The objective is to create a united and cohesive community that supports people with autism and their friends and loved ones.
