Volunteer Opportunities: The ASM Volunteer Project needs trustworthy and caring people to help monitor occasional group activities to allow parents of children with autism to interact with other adults, without worry. You would be instrumental in reducing feelings of isolation among parents or caregivers, by providing them the chance – the time -- to build internal supports and friendships with other parents. For more information on becoming a volunteer, or to request an application, call ASM at 1-800-273-5200. You can also download a volunteer form directly.

If you are already on our volunteer list, know that the 2 or 3 hours of time you donate two or three times a year make a big difference in the lives of families affected by autism. Thank you for all that you do in sharing the precious gift of your time.
