 We are a 501c3 100% non-profit organization that is made up entirely of volunteer board members that are parents of children with autism or professional in related fields.  We appreciate all of the sponsors and donors that have supported us over the last twelve years that allows us to pay it forward to many families in Central Illinois.  As the number of children diagnosed with autism continues to grow, so does the need for the services, support, grants and sensory friendly events that we provide. 

How can you help?

About the Walk

The Autism Society Central Illinois Chapter (ASCI) is holding the 2017 “Take a Step for Autism” Walk and Family Fun Day at the NOll Medical Pavilion, 5220 S. 6th Street Rd, Springfield, Illinois. Last year, ASCI raised over $18,000 that benefited individuals with Autism and their families in Central Illinois. The proven success of this walk has led us to do it again on Saturday, April 29th, 2017 in recognition of Autism Awareness Month!   Participation is FREE.
