The Autism Society of Florida believes that people affected by autism are full citizens and full participants in an open democratic society. All people with autism have the right to advocate for themselves at all levels of government. ASF monitors legislation in the Florida Legislature and disseminates e-mail alerts on pending priority state legislation that might impact those with autism. We perform advocacy through the work of our volunteer Board of Directors and community members. Working with the national Autism Society, we also maintain a strong voice on Capitol Hill to shape federal policy that provides benefits, supports, and services across the lifespan for all affected by autism.
Join the Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors is compromised of community members just like you, who have volunteered their time to our cause! While our application process has completed for this year, there are other ways that you can help the ASF in its endeavor to improve the lives of those with autism.
