The purpose of the Lane
County Chapter of the Austism Society of Oregon (which

coordinate delivery of services for a diverse autism community of
all ages and across all reaches of the autism spectrum; to advocate
for, serve, celebrate and educate the autism community; to collaborate
on services without duplicating efforts; to support and work with
other autism organizations; and to build and nurture a viable community
for young autists to grow up in and for our adults to thrive in.

autism organizations - Bridgeway House, KindTree Productions, 4J
School District, Direction Service, Hilyard Community Center, U
