Autism Society of Ohio looking for volunteers (Central Ohio)
Are You Looking to Get Involved? Volunteer for the Autism Society of Ohio!
The mission of the Autism Society of Ohio (ASO) is to improve the lives of all affected by autism in Ohio. The ASO includes persons with autism, families, and professionals working together to improve services and support at the state level.
What is Autism?
Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person's ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum disorder" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause for autism, but increased awareness and funding can help families today. The CDC recently reported that 1 in 88 children have some form of Autism. Help us provide support service to families across Central Ohio.
We are looking for volunteers to help us in a variety of areas. We need help with any of the following:
Community Ambassadors: Help provide resources and promote autism awareness.
Special Events: Man our "resource table" at conferences, health fairs, walks, basketball games,etc.,
