We are fortunate to have many Orange County autism resources available for families having children with autism and autism
spectrum disorders. However, the Orange County autism community has been somewhat disorganized leaving families
affected by autism and autism spectrum disorders confused and disheartened. Over the years we have pieced together some
resources which we have routinely given to our Orange County families affected by autism. For Orange County families who
have just received the autism diagnosis, we hope to speed up the cycle time from the autism diagnosis to effective treatments.
We also hope to strengthen the Orange County autism community by connecting families with competent and caring
professionals.
