ASA chapters are your best source of information and support. Most chapters are volunteer-led by parents, care providers and other professionals. ASA has chapters in nearly every state reaching out to individuals with autism and their families with information, support, and encouragement. A chapter is the place where:

* Dedicated parent and professional volunteers provide information and services specific to a local area
* Parents can find resources for recently diagnosed children
* Families can find comfort and companionship managing the years of growth and change
* Local grassroots advocacy is organized for implementing change where change is necessary

The purpose of this organization (ASA-NV) shall be to promote the general welfare of children and adults with autism and to provide support for their families; to support the education, vocational training and recreation of those with autism; to aid in the collection and dissemination of information to parents, professionals and the general public and to foster and reinforce awareness and respect for the rights of parents as the prime case managers in their autistic family member’s life. We publish a monthly newsletter with a circulation of approximately 1400. The newsletter keeps chapter members informed about information on autism and related disorders. It includes news articles, personal vignettes, and notices of upcoming seminars and conferences. The newsletter is collated, stapled, and prepared for mailing by local high school students with autism. The newsletter was honored with the “Best Newsletter” award at the 1995 Annual Convention of the Autism Society of America.
