Autism+ Communities

The Autism+ Program is dedicated to making our communities more accessible for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other disabilities and their families. Through organization-specific Autism Awareness training and ongoing consultation for staff, the Autism+ Program strives to ensure businesses obtain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to support individuals with ASD and other developmental disabilities.

Through this process, organizations can:

  • Increase their understanding of ASD
  • Make their space and services more accessible
  • Increase diversity of clientele
  • Increase revenue
  • Create a greater sense of belonging for all

If your organization is interested in receiving these services, please email CDD-NMAutismPlus@salud.unm.edu or call 505-272-1852.
