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 care givers 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.
