The Autism Council of Rochester, Inc

The Autism Councicl of Rochester, Inc is a nonprofit agency run by volunteers to ensure that young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder have a plan to prepare for adulthood after they leave school. We work with students and their families to develop community integration (transition) plans and we seek out individuals and businesses who are willing and able to allow these talented young people equal  work/life experiences. 

The Autism Council of Rochester, Inc is the only nonprofit agency in the state of New York that offers individualized services to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Each person who enters our program is assessed so that their individual needs can be identified. We offer Autism Training Workshops to businesses, educators, medical providers, parents and community members. It is our mission to ensure that our community recognizes the growing number of youth with Autism, and help these individuals reach their full potential through effective treatments and public awareness.

Autism Training workshops cover the following topics:

  • Teaching techniques to use with Autism Spectrum Disorder clients
  • Transition skills and services
  • Project Safety Net (preparing individuals for emergency situations)
  • First responder training
  • SCIP-R (de-escalation techniques)
  • Community awareness of Autism and other related developmental disabilities

Although each client has a unique treatment plan, the following programs are available to them.

  • Transition to Work - Emphasis on resume writing and interviewing skills
  • College Prep and Mentoring - Provides college students who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder with the encouragement, support and tutoring needed to remain in college and graduate
  • Community Intergration Program - Teaches the skills necessary for independent living 
  • Social Recreation Program - Focuses on developing healthy friendships and how to avoid dangerous social situations and people.  
  • Art Communication - Allows participants to communicate non verbally giving them an outlet to reach out to a society that is dependent on verbal communication
