Since 1995, USAAA began improving the quality of life of individuals affected by ASD. In the summer of 2005, Special Abilities evolved into US Autism & Asperger Association, Inc. with a mission to provide the opportunity for everyone living with autism spectrum disorders to achieve their fullest potential, by enriching the autism community with education, training, accessible resources, and partnerships with local and national projects.

Support from donors and members provide resources to make our programs possible. 100% of all donations to USAAA go directly to providing support for our programs and initiatives. No administrative costs are funded by donations.
