Message from the Office Supervisor

For the past 10 years I have been serving children, adults, and families affected by Autism and diverse developmental disabilities. I have a passion for providing support, facilitating growth, and enriching the lives of my fellow community members and families. My unique position at Autism LifeSpan allows me to connect families with the information, service providers, and interventions they are seeking for their loved ones with ASD. Here at Autism LifeSpan, we strive to improve the lives of those affected by Autism through education, support, advocacy, and public awareness.

We provide services for individuals and families affected by Autism in the Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, and Trinity counties. We also connect with service providers, agency staff, educators, and professionals who are interested in furthering our mission. Our services are open to any individual, family, or community member.

Our Autism LifeSpan office publishes a newsletter and maintains an extensive book and video lending library so our community members may keep up with the latest news and developments. We educate the general community and families affected by autism on a variety of topics including, but not limited to, special education, services, and therapies. We advocate for children and adults on the autism spectrum, and provide supports for the individual through their entire lifespan.

Autism LifeSpan has a monthly Meet and Greet for parents and caregivers of children of all ages with developmental delays. Together we are a strong support system and source of information for each other. Please come by the office and check out what we offer, or call us anytime. We strive to serve you and your family.
