Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health and Safety Guide
ASERT has compiled resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
Since 1967, Autism Pittsburgh has been the local action unit of the Autism Society of America, the foremost voice and resource of the nation’s autism community. They are comprised of volunteers, parents, and professionals, working on behalf of all children and those of adult age on the autism spectrum. Their objective is to improve the lives of those with autism and related disorders of behavior and communication.
Autism Pittsburgh’s operational imperative is the Options Policy of the Autism Society of American — “that parents have a right to learn about all resources and service options and to choose those they feel are most appropriate for their family member with autism.”
As such, the Mission in the greater Pittsburgh area is:
To provide advocacy, support and thorough information on care, treatment, educational and habilitative service options available for those with autism spectrum disorders, autism-involved parents and families, and to professionals who work with them.
To encourage expansion and develop excellence in a continuum of appropriate service options.
To provide unbiased information for ALL such options to parents, families and to the caring professionals who work with them to reduce or overcome autism-disabling characteristics.
To help autism-involved parents, families and professionals grow by providing as much relevant information on autism spectrum disorders as is known to us.
