"Acceptance is not love. You love a person because he or she has lovable traits, but you accept everybody just because they're alive and human." ~ Dr. Albert Ellis

Our Mission:

The Autism Acceptance mission focuses on advocacy, education, and community outreach to create a supportive environment for everyone effected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and related communication disorders.

Our Values:

Respect for Humanity and Cultural Diversity:

We consider all persons worthy of appreciation and respect without discrimination as to abilities, age, culture, education, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, nationality, race, religious beliefs, political opinions, sexual orientation or socio-economic class.


Advocacy:

We honor our heritage by promoting equality, mutual understanding and cooperation throughout society. We endorse access to all public services. We accept personal responsibility and encourage personal empowerment on behalf of oneself and  / or others.



Education:


We are committed to promoting best practice services by attending educational workshops, training seminars and conferences concurrently.


Community Outreach:

Collaboration with other organizations to build long-term mutually supportive networks dedicated to providing best-practice services is essential to our mission.


Ethics:

We uphold the highest ethical standards professionally and personally



System of Care (SOC):

We encourage a System of Care (SOC) that is founded on the principle that service methodology is dictated by the individual and/or the family’s desired outcomes. Our organization promotes the concept of a systemic approach that is person-centered and family guided. Services provided are determined by the consumers' self-identified goals and driven by their priorities. The goal is to create a collaborative partnership between the individual and the service provider.
