Welcome

We are here to help!

1 in 68 children now have Autism according to the CDC. If your child has recently been diagnosed with Autism, or you have been told that your child is exhibiting “autistic-like” behavior, it can be very challenging and stressful figuring out where to start and who to contact. We can help!  Click here to send us a note or give us a call.  The national Autism Society has information for families new to the diagnosis which can be viewed here or look for local resources on our Resources page.



Thank you for participating in Autism Society Ventura County’s first Annual Community Survey! ASVC will use your feedback to determine our top priorities in the years to come.  We had over 100 responses from 21 different cities so thank you!
