Anderson Center for Autism hosts a variety of events throughout the year to educate and connect with our friends and supporters in the community. Anderson’s annual fundraising event is typically held during the first weekend in October.

Throughout the course of the weekend we recognize community leaders and our good friends who help us provide extraordinary service to individuals with autism and their  families. Other events include happy hour events with staff and friends, donor cultivation events at local venues, on-campus events for families and friends including an autumn Harvest Festival, Open House and Cultural Fest, training conferences including our signature conference, Autism Tomorrow, advocacy events, art shows, and community-based autism friendly events that bring our individuals out to participate fully in all that our region has to offer. Visit our calendar to see what’s happening soon.

Just over 30 years ago, I made the hardest decision of my life and moved my eight year old son with autism to what was then Anderson School. I knew he could benefit greatly from immersion in a program devoted to his specific needs. Of course, I’ve remained very active in his life and am thrilled that his progression over the years at Anderson Center has been amazing. The staff is made up of such special people with a unique sense of dedication to the individuals they serve. And, their expertise, dedication and hard work is rewarded every day in the difference they make in the lives of the students and adults.
