Thank you all for your support of Autism Society Los Angeles.  It's been a busy couple of months with Autism Acceptance month in April, Memorial Day Observances and our May/June Independent Facilitator training partnered with North LA County Regional Center.


ASLA continues to work with LAPD to provide Autism Safety training, a program we are looking to expand into additional local police departments in the near future.


Our Warm-Line continues to provide assistance to the community, and we are seeing increased call volume as the community works through the lingering pandemic and a challenging economy.


Again, thanks for your support, and remember, every dollar donated in LA is invested in LA with ASLA...
