Because Only Together We Can
Support the needs of our local autism community.
ASCI began from the roots of a parent support group founded in 2002. In January of 2004, the nonprofit organization was incorporated as the Central Illinois Chapter of the Autism Society of America. In 2018, the board unanimously voted to disenfranchise from Autism Society of America changing its name to Autism Support of Central Illinois and retaining its original Federal ID number and charitable status. We continue to meet the diverse needs of the autism community throughout central Illinois.
