Autism Society of Maine

The Autism Society of Maine (ASM) is a non-profit organization founded in 1976, whose membership consists of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), their families, members of the community, and the professionals who work with them. As an affiliate of the Autism Society, our mission is to promote lifelong access and opportunity for all individuals on the autism spectrum to become participating members of their communities. Education, advocacy, support and public awareness form the cornerstones of the Autism Society of Maine's efforts to carry forth our mission.

The Autism Society of Maine offers an Autism Information Specialist Program that directly supports parents or individuals with ASD. This program offers one on one support to attend a school IEP meeting or IFSP meeting and can help with PCP planning with adults. Meeting with an AIS who understands what you're going though can help navigate state systems for both children and adults. Click here to learn more about this program.
