Arms Around ASD

Arms Around ASD
Asheville, NC

The mission of Arms Around ASD is to support the autism community through self-care and development of executive functioning skills promoting the growth of the community as a whole. Arms is unique in that we provide services for people on the autism spectrum regardless of age, ability or income AND their families, care providers, support staff and other professionals (teachers, doctors, nurses, therapists, etc) who work with them. Everyone who works with AAASD is a volunteer. From our acupuncturist to our Zumba instructor, front desk person to executive director, we all have our arms around autism spectrum disorder. Arms is one giant hug to families who seek our services.
