Welcome to your London Autism Ontario Chapter! Our goal is to be a reliable source of information and support for all London, Oxford, Middlesex and Elgin citizens who have a connection to autism, including families, children, adults on the spectrum, caregivers, support workers, and teachers.
What we do:

- Work with community partners to promote and enhance awareness about autism
- Holds various fundraising events throughout the year, and run programs and events for individuals with ASD and their families to get involved, socialize and network
Our Vision: Acceptance and opportunities for all individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Our Mission: To ensure that each individual with ASD is provided the means to achieve quality of life as a respected member of society.
Our 6 Key Areas of Focus

- Public Awareness
Autism Ontario (formerly Autism Society Ontario) is the leading source of information and referral on autism and one of the largest collective voices representing the autism community. Members are connected through a volunteer network of Chapters throughout the Province of Ontario.
We are guided by a Board of Directors, composed primarily of parents of individuals with autism, plus a host of volunteers and respected professionals who provide expertise and guidance to the organization on a volunteer basis.
Autism Ontario is dedicated to increasing public awareness about autism and the day-to-day issues faced by individuals with autism, their families, and the professionals with whom they interact. The association and its chapters share common goals of providing information and education, supporting research, and advocating for programs and services for the autism community.
