The Autism Project of Southern Ohio is a non-profit support group for families and individuals with Autism in the Southern Ohio region. We're here to spread awareness and to educate the public about autism.


Our Mission

Our mission is to spread Autism awareness among the Southern Ohio community and provide support to Autistic individuals and their families in the area.

Autism … offers a chance for us to glimpse an awe-filled vision of the world that might otherwise pass us by.
