As a community of support our efforts will help to provide parents and caregivers with loved ones affected by autism with ongoing support through social events, advocacy and free programs. We also will maintain an ongoing effort to help spread autism awareness worldwide by way of public venues, use of social media outlets and our own website.

La Bonita Dawson
I am a mother of 4(+1) beautiful children and 2 grandchildren. My youngest child, who will soon be 13 was officially diagnosed with Autism and ADHD in 2010. His name is DeAndre. Not long after his diagnosis, the vision for Autism And Us started to form. It has grown into a great community of support, not just for me but for other parents like me who are living the journey. It's all about Autism And Us!
My husband and I have four children. Our youngest child Emily was diagnosed with Autism in 2007. She is now 14 years old. I have been with Autism and Us since October of 2017. I am proud to be a part of such an important community such as Autism and Us. Its all about supporting one another along our autism journeys!
