Autism Support

Hello! My name is Laura Corby and I'm the Founder/CEO of Autism Solution Center Foundation, Inc. Over the last seven years working in the field of autism spectrum disorders as both a parent, professional, and an individual with a spectrum disorder myself, I have seen many lacking areas of autism support for families seeking answers and assistance globally.

My hope is to provide a vehicle to educate, encourage, and strengthen the autism community, in an attempt to draw us all together in one loud, strong voice! Sure, there are many differences in opinion on treatments, methodologies, and therapies, yet I firmly believe there is more we agree on than not! Let's agree to disagree in areas of differing opinions, yet remain a solid, cohesive community that moves autism treatment, education, and research to the forefront.

I am also seeking guest bloggers and regular contributors to assist in our new blog and help keep content fresh and up-do-date. If you interested or have resources you would like to add to our blog, please feel free to contact me. It's my belief that the more autism resources available to our community, the better.

I look forward to engaging you all in numerous areas of autism support and education.

Let me also share with you the mission and vision of Autism Solution Center Foundation, Inc. and our Public Service Announcement below, that hopefully will give you a better idea of what's to come! We are excited about the plans to provide autism support to families in need globally, regardless of their ability to pay! Let's all help make this a reality!
