Autism Society of the Heartland

Autism Society of the HeartlandImproving the lives of all those affected by autism


The Autism Society of the Heartland is a 501(c)(3) non-profit chapter of the Autism Society of America.  ASH exists to improve the lives of all who are affected by autism.  We do this at the grassroots level by providing support to families.  We also bring about public awareness about the day-to-day issues faced by people on the spectrum, advocating for appropriate services for individuals across the lifespan, and providing the latest information regarding treatment, education, research and advocacy.


All funds raised are kept in the Greater Kansas City Area to support our families.  In addition to our support meetings held each month, we have quarterly socials for our families where they are able to enjoy the festivities without looking over their shoulders to see if anyone is watching should their child have a meltdown or inappropriate moment.  We have quarterly birthday parties for our children on the spectrum since many are not normally invited to birthday parties.  ASH provides grants and scholarships to send our kids to overnight and day camps, help obtain intensive early intervention of services, help with security issues and to obtain educational support and therapy.
