About Us

Autism & Asperger Connections is a 501c3 non-profit organization linking families, individuals, and professionals in the Colorado Springs community to autism support, information, and resources.

While we officially became a nonprofit organization in September 2010, the support group that started it all was formed in 2005 by the mom of a boy with Asperger’s Syndrome.  What started out as one small support group has now grown to seven monthly support group meetings, an active online community via our Facebook group, a monthly newsletter, and various other activities and outreach in support of the Colorado Springs autism community.

We are an all-volunteer organization funded 100% by private donations. All of our services are offered at no cost, including our support groups, social groups, and email/phone support.  We are always looking for volunteers, so if you’d like to get involved, contact us!
