About Us

Autism Spectrum


 ​Autism spectrum  disorder is a complex developmental disability that typically appears  during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to  communicate and interact with others.

Our Mission


 Founded in the 1970’s by Geri Christ Landry, we are an affiliate  in good standing with the Autism Society of America. We provide support,  services and opportunities to persons with autism and their families in  the following parishes: Calcasieu, Cameron, Beauregard, Jeff Davis,  Allen, and Vernon. 



 Support meetings are held the first Saturday of each month,  September through May in Lake Charles. In addition, we have an extensive  lending library with the latest books and DVD’s available for  individuals to check out at their leisure. We provide advocacy in  schools as well as conferences and workshops.
