ASGW Resource Guide

The purpose of our guide is to provide information about resources in Wisconsin that may be helpful to you and your family. It includes brief descriptions of services and gives contact information to learn more about these and other resources. The Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin believes that every person and family affected by autism is unique. You have the right to learn about all options and then select what you feel is the most appropriate for you. Some of the resources listed in this guide may be right for you and your family, while others may not match your family’s unique needs.

The Autism Society of the Fox Valley also publishes a resource guide for the Fox Valley area:
