San Antonio Community Resource Directory
Autism Community Network (Nonprofit )

Autism Community Network is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2008 through an initiative led by a consortium of healthcare funders concerned about the growing prevalence of autism and the rapid rise in the demand for qualified diagnostic services. After a communtiy planning project, the agency opened its clinic to the austim community on San Antonio's underserved West Side in March 2009.

The primary goals of the Autism Service Center of San Antonio are to provide early, high quality interdisciplinary diagnosis and treatment for young children with autism spectrum disorder; education and training for autism service providers and families touched by autism; and comprehensive information and networking for our autism community.
