Autism Services Inc., was organized in 1984 by the parents of sons and daughters with autism and a few professionals to serve the then unaddressed needs of high functioning autistic adults and their families.
The mission of ASI is threefold:
* to provide community-based homes for people with autism
* to transition adults with autism from intermediate care facilities (ICFs) and other institutions to more independent living arrangements that are more life enhancing and far less expensive to society, and
* to preclude the need to institutionalize people with autism for whom a more independent living arrangement is appropriate.
To meet the needs of Triangle families, ASI now serves the children and adults with a variety of special needs, including autism with developmental disabilities and similar problems.
