Philadelphia Autism Project
Posted by A.J. Drexel Autism Institute on January 28, 2020
What We Do
The Philadelphia Autism Project supports autistic individuals and their families living in Philadelphia through:
- Education: Training and eLearning Courses
- Connections: A centralized resource hub, calendar of events, and fostering community collaborations
- Innovation: Seed funding for community organizations, an annual conference, and new programs for people on the spectrum and their families
The Philadelphia Autism Project was established in 2013 by the office of former City Councilmember-at-Large Dennis M. O’Brien and continues to be supported through the office of City Councilmember-at-Large Derek S. Green. The Philadelphia Autism Project works in tandem with the statewide Autism Services, Education, Resources and Training (ASERT) Collaborative.
The Philadelphia Autism Project works in partnership with Philadelphia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) and Community Behavioral Health (CBH). It is the first citywide initiative of its kind and is located at the Policy and Analytics Center (PAC) at the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute.
