Autism Site Knoxville: A Community Center for Information, Education, Recreation & Support
With the rate of autism diagnosis continually on the rise, a growing local population of children and adults with autism and caregivers need a home away from home where they can find autism-specific resources, support, understanding, education, and recreation. While excellent autism providers are available in the Knoxville, many parents have difficulty finding them due to the lack of a local physical central hub for autism information distribution. Autism Site Knoxville will launch a community resource center, utilizing its website and community partners to enhance parent networking and provide a community-managed directory of available resources. By early 2016 a physical parent-driven center will be open to provide resource distribution, training, support groups, and social opportunities.
