Welcome to  NSASA

NSASA is a non-profit organization serving over 4,000 families on Long Island. Our mission is to support individuals with autism in our local community.

Through our fundraising efforts, we are able to provide free educational, social, and recreational opportunities to families touched by autism. NSASA organizes a variety of events including rollerskating, private movie screenings, Outback Steakhouse luncheons, plays, bowling, and more! It is our goal to provide positive experiences for families in a non-judgmental, welcoming environment.

NSASA also provides grants to local school programs that serve children with autism. Through our program, we provide grants for technology, classroom materials, and community outings for autism programs.

We support education and advocacy at both the state and federal levels. The mission of the Autism Society of America (ASA) is to provide lifelong access and opportunities for all individuals within the autism spectrum, and their families, to be fully participating, included members of their community.

Mission Statement

At the Autism Society of America, we create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully. It is our vision to create a world where everyone in the Autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it.
