About Autism Society Acadiana: In 1985, a group of parents whose children had autism formed Autism Society Acadiana to provide a place where other families touched by autism could find information, guidance, and support. The organization has grown to serve over 800 individuals and families in seven Acadiana parishes. Services offered include support groups, workshops and trainings, recreation and education stipends, mini-grants for teachers and other school-based professionals, family-friendly events, and other resources.
