Autism Resource Center of Central Massachusetts was conceived in 1996 by a group of parents to serve primarily as an information and referral service for children and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders. As a family-centered project, the center has expanded to provide family supports, information and referral, education and networking.
Funding from the Department of Developmental Services, supplemented by our own fund-raising, supports this program.
