Our Mission:

Educate + Activate

It can be difficult to know what to do when your child is diagnosed with autism. Our mission is to make that process easier for Alaskan families.


Our Mission

Families every day may lack understanding of what their child is going through or how to best provide for their special needs child. As an organization, Autism Alaska aims to aid families in the State of Alaska, helping them find what they and their children affected by autism need to thrive.
