Autism Society of Wisconsin Becomes Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin
The Autism Society of Wisconsin becomes the Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin
We are excited to announce our new name – the Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin.
A recent decision by the Autism Society of America changed our service area from all 72 Wisconsin counties to the northern 53 counties. No longer a statewide organization, the Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin name is a better reflection of the organization’s service area.
The Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin’s service area includes Vernon, Juneau, Adams, Marquette, Green Lake, Fond du Lac, and Sheboygan counties and extends up to the northern border of Wisconsin. It includes 53 of the 72 Wisconsin counties. The southern 19 counties are served by the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin and the Autism Society of South Central Wisconsin. Families in these areas are encouraged to reach out to their respective affiliates for questions about resources and programs.
The Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin will continue to serve as the parent organization for five local Autism Society affiliates (Central, Chippewa Valley, Fox Valley, Lakeshore, and Northeast), located throughout our service area and shown on the map. These affiliates will continue to offer the same programs and services they always have. Likewise, our organization will continue to offer the same services and programs, with no other changes to structure or operations.
The Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin continues its commitment to making a difference in the lives of those affected by autism in Wisconsin. We will continue to work with the other Autism Society affiliates to continue statewide initiatives.
The formal transition to the new name, the Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin, took place on May 9th. At that time our website moved to autismgreaterwi.org and our staff can be reached at the new email addresses below. Please make a note to change your records.
