Mission
To improve the lives of all people affected by autism in Indiana. To us, “people affected” means: individuals with autism, their families, teachers, physicians, therapists, bus drivers, restaurant owners…etc! We do this by providing individualized information and support referrals to individuals who are affected by autism TODAY.

We understand that autism is a lifelong disability. ASI is here to provide support and advocacy, and to increase awareness and acceptance throughout our state. We are the first point of contact for people around Indiana when they need support, input, or a shoulder to cry on. Our staff all have close family members who are on the autism spectrum, which gives us that real-life experience that you can’t learn from a book.
Program Description
An Indiana affiliate of the Autism Society of America. Information & referral for services in Indiana for autism. Services include but are not limited to:

Indiana Allies: This statewide program connects you with a knowledgeable parent of a child with autism who can listen, refer to resources, connect you with a support group, and much more. Call 800-609-8449 and enter your 5-digit zip code to be connected with the Ally for your area. Use extension 33 for our Spanish-speaking Ally.

CareerAlly: The goal of this program is to work with individuals with autism to help find meaningful employment using the CareerAlly software, which matches individuals with autism to businesses based on a number of specific criteria that is not necessarily "resume" specific. For more information on participating in the CareerAlly program, visit www.CareerAlly.com or call 1-800-609-8449 extension 99.

Family and Caregiver Training provides autism specific training and education for family members or primary caregivers, including: stress management, behavioral intervention support strategies, community integration, family dynamics training specific to autism, and more.

Respite Care: Families are now receiving much needed breaks and time to revisit those things they once did or dreamed of doing outside their day to day family responsibilities, thus affording them the energy needed to provide optimal care to their loved one. Openings for the Respite Pilot Program are limited. If you are unable to access respite services and would like more information, please call 800-609-8449 ext. 77.
