AutismUp was formed by 4 moms with children newly diagnosed with autism. Our founders recognized the lack of community, education and support for families. AutismUp now reaches over 3100 families providing free education, support and community outreach. We also provide programming ranging from socialization to fitness geared directly to individual needs. We have expanded to include Full Life Academy for our participants who have aged out of traditional schooling to continue their education in independence. Any donations AutismUp receives, stays local to Rochester.
