Building a world where we all belong.

Life Skills. Social Connection. Community Integration. Vocational Training.

Urban Autism Solutions is dedicated to changing outcomes for young adults with autism and related challenges through an integrated community life that advances social and vocational opportunities.

Every year, thousands of teens with autism age out of high school. For the majority of these young adults, this is the end of their autism-based services and support. As a result, students can go on to be jobless and develop feelings of isolation.

UAS provides a pathway to autonomy where traditional systems fall short by offering clinical and community-based services that equip young adults with essential job and life skills.

Empower
Growth

April is Autism Acceptance Month and inclusion is a crucial part of this: where all individuals are given the opportunity to access the support and services they need to flourish.

 

An alarming issue being exposed in Illinois is that it has the highest rates of institutionalizing individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities (IDD) in the country. However, it has been shown that people with IDD flourish in a community setting rather than in an institution. Watch the CBS News documentary that sheds more light on the challenges these families face.

“Urban Autism Solutions es el primer grupo basado en el autismo al que mi hermano ha asistido de buena gana y con entusiasmo. y amable.  Matt ha asistido a clases de cocina, juegos de béisbol y noches de cine y siempre regresa a casa de estos eventos diciendo lo mucho que se divirtió._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ Estos eventos se han convertido en la piedra angular de su vida social. Por primera vez en su vida adulta, tiene la oportunidad de participar en actividades apropiadas para su edad. que no son facilitados por miembros de la familia.”
