Autism Resource Center

  • Welcome to the Autism Resource Center!

    The mission of the Autism Resource Center is to provide access to resources, consultation and training for caregivers and educators supporting students receiving special education services in School District 54.

    Child care is not available

    A very small children’s area is available for young children who require minimal supervision to wait while you visit the center. We encourage you to access the center when your child is in school or with child care support so that you can meet with a professional at the Autism Resource Center.
