Austin (Minnesota)

The Autism Friendly Austin (AFA) Project began as a way to encourage current Autism Service providers, retailers and businesses to work together to better serve the Autism community. There are currently over 100 students in the Austin Public Schools diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. That does not include the number of adults living amongst us who are also on the Spectrum. We can be a better community by understanding the needs of these people who are your customers, your employees, and your neighbors.
