"There is no debate or doubt: early intervention is your child's best hope for the future. Early attention to improving the core behavioral symptoms of autism will give your child - and the rest of the family - several important benefits.....early intervention will improve the outcome for your child." ~Autism Speaks article titled, How do I Get the Help My Child Needs?

Mid-Michigan Autism Association
Mid-Michigan Autism Association is made up of local people working to improve the quality of life for individuals and families living with developmental disability in Mid-Michigan. In 2008 MMAA was started by a small group of parents and professionals who wanted to understand best treatment options and local resources for our kids with autism. Early on we identified that the work we were doing applied to families living with developmental disabilities of all kinds. Thus the by line Autism Driven, not Autism Specific.

Autism H.O.P.E. of Lenawee
"We are a group of parents and professionals whose lives have been impacted by a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have gathered together to offer HOPE. We feel autism is treatable and will provide resources and programs to help with your child's progress and development. Autism is thought of as a life long sentence... Unfortunately, many parents are told their children will never talk or lead an independent life. We don't believe that! Early Intervention is so important! You are not alone! There is HOPE!"
